I just found your awesome challenge blog earlier this evening, and I got SUPER excited and made my own paper tonight - which I haven't done in a VERY long time. I just finished my card for the challenge, and need to wait til morning to take a photo when there's adequate light. I'm SO excited to have found your Cupcakey Cute Challenge Blog, and look forward to playing along. See you in the morning!
