Okay, I was a tiny bit leery of this challenge. I am a weenie and I have been known to be cut by marshmallows and bananas, so cutting open a soda can was OUT OF THE QUESTION. Even though my deductible has been met for this year, I really wasn't relishing a trip to the ER. I had a piece of tooling copper in my stash and VERY CAREFULLY ran it through the cuttlebug with the leaf EF. It was pretty sharp so I cut a frame and sealed it between two pieces of cardstock--didn't want any of our patients suffering any more needlessly! Any way, for the first time, I ranked a card 2 on the difficulty scale. (Just to CMA in case someone else does this! :))
Wished I'd had a wider plaid ribbon in my stash but it'll do, it'll do.

That is such a funny story...do they know you by name at the ER. That is what my son always says...yes he is there a lot! But anyway, your card...love it. love the copper and the leaves! Love the fall colored plaid ribbon too!

It's beautiful, and you get extra points for bravery! I feel the same way about cutting up soda cans. My Mommy told me not to play with sharp objects. LOL! I love the way the leaves, plaid ribbon and embossed copper look so good together.
