This my first time playing Hope You Can Cling To challenges! I CASE most of my cards, so I don't upload many of them. So that's what THIS card says about me - I CASE'd it from Michelle Reynolds, changing the colors to a combo from a couple weeks ago:
~ Susan - Celebrating 11 years as an SU demo! Grammy to Anna 7, Elizabeth 6, Nora 4, Abigail 4, Kendall 2, Isaac 22 months (in my avatar) and one to be born in February 2016! Proud to be SCS Fan Club Member since the beginning!
Such a great challenge, Lydia!
My card reflects my style because it has the following elements:
1. It's shiny and bright (Cuttlebug's gear box EF on silver paper)
2. Lots of colors- I like a vibrant card- here- green and orange are central colors.
3. Different textures and shapes- for visual interest- I used 2 embossing folders, tangled embroidery floss, and felt.
4. Full of recycled/gifts from Stamping Buddies- I love to re-use! The silver paper is from the recycle bin of Stampadoodle here in Bellingham, WA, as is the apple green paper. The card backing is a reused thank you note. Here's my card- Sparkle Bird

I'm so happy to be participating in these challenges again this year! Although I create cards with varying styles I think what truly speaks "me" is anything that has lots of texture, dimension, multiple layers, patterned paper, embossing and throw in a little math calculation. I'm definitely not a "clean and simple" card maker. Here is my card Hope Is...
Describing my style was a challenge for me too. But I really like making clean and simple cards wtih colors that pop. And lately I have been enjoying making tongue and cheek cards for my girlfriends. I think this card represent my style. Slice 'em up and add some tequilla
So my style here -- layers, a beautiful bow, rhinestones and I love to trace the inside of my Nestie before removing the image. I saw it on a blog and just love it -- probably "so last year", but I love it.
