What's even more amazing?!  This is my very first post for the Cardabilities Design Team!  I have been a LONG-TIME fan of Karan Gerber's amazing sketches and am thrilled to join this talented team!


My Sunflower Surprise card was based on our new fabulous sketch over at Cardabilities!  Head on over to see what the other talented designers have created using Cardabilities #83!

My card today is a great mix of inspiration, both from the Curtain Call and Cardabilities!  A perfect combination of challenges, I think!
