I am late with this posting..yikes! I was supposed to post this earlier today...LOL...for the Sweet Stamping Pixies Challenge Blog. Today being the 2nd Monday of the month--it's still Monday here in my neck of the woods, LOL, although it's already tomorrow in Europe--it's time for a new challenge to be introduced. The theme for the October challenge is Autumn/Fall.
Anyway, I had managed to finished only the card front, took a picture of it and send it over to meet the deadline be posted in the challenge blog. Took me today to finished the rest of the card...LOL. Finally, here is my DT card.

I've made my card into a twisted easel card--I haven't made too many of this type of easel cards.
Like the name says, it's an easel card with a twist. If you're interested, my DT teamie Pam Sparks has a tutorial for this if you're interested, HERE.
