Ok, so now onto my project!  Here are the details:

*American Crafts Foil Specialty paper
-card base = 4 1/4" x 5 1/2"
-red mat = 1/8" around
*candy embossing folder from Mini Monsters Cuttlebug Companion folders
*Holiday Stamps laser die cuts
*ATG adhesive
*ribbon from Michaels

(I love bling, and all things shiny, so....) WARNING, YOU MAY NEED SUNGLASSES TO LOOK AT THE FOLLOWING CARD:





So there you go, I hope you like it!  I'm sorry for the bad pictures, my camera batteries ran out before I could get better ones :( It was simple to put together, but when you have beautiful laser cuts, and such gorgeous paper (I HIGHLY recommend this for all your cards!), you don't have to do much.  And isn't this the perfect candy embossing folder?!?!  And speaking of candy, I can't forget about the BLOG CANDY!! 



The box has a little mini album, and some beee-uuu-tiful embellishments that come with it.  To enter for the blog candy:
