It’s that time of the month again for the Roses Challenge. This month was Sue’s challenge. Her challenge was to create a “FANCY FOLD” card. I had been surfing the web and came across this tutorial to create a birthday cake with candles easel card. How perfect! So, I decided to make this birthday card for my daughter, Karissa. Her birthday isn’t until July but now I have it done early. Hope you get some time to check out the other Roses cards (Betty, Connie, Kerrie, Mary Anne, Olga, Patti and Sue). Their links are located on the right side of my blog. As always they have done a spectacular job! Well, next month is my challenge. Be sure to stop back to see what I maybe challenging the gals the last Sunday of the month.
