**~ Flash Card Album ~**

A while back I started my own Design Team... and we are currently on our third challenge... I wanted to show you exactly what we are doing in this particular challenge since several people have asked me about it.

I bought a very inexpensive pack of mathematical flash-cards at the Dollar Tree.... yep! You guessed it... there were only $1.00 and there are more than 50 cards in the pack!

For the challenge.... the Design Team Members are going to make a mini Christmas Album using jumbo playing cards or flash cards. They can use whatever colors they choose.... with the following requirements.....

They must use B*L*I*N*G !!!!

They must use any Christmas cuts from any of their Cricut Cartridges they have.

They must use any kind of embellishments... brads, eyelets, etc....

They have to have atleast 12 "pages" in their album and it can be bound anyway they choose.

So above, you are looking at this plain flash card....... it's nothing special....... no special coating.... just a cheap... thin.... card..... turned into this adorable front page of my mini Christmas album!

I used my Christmas Cheer cart to cut snowflakes at 2" and 3" on some awesome holographic paper that my wonderful Secret-Sister Jane (CMB name cajungirlinwales) sent to me! Then to really make it more special... the pink rhinestones you see at the top left side (above the ric-rac) and the metal letters that spell "YOU" came TODAY in my Christmas Paint Can Swap from my can-sister Bridget (CMB name ~BridgetL.~)

This picture doesn't really do it justice but you get the idea! : )

Here is shot of "page" from the bottom of the card... you can see the layers.....

For the paper with the "YOU" attached to it... I just tore the edge of this the whole way around.

I used my "Cotton Candy" ink pad to ink the edges of the entire card.

The little snowflak in the upper right-hand corner is a sticker that I found at M's when they just started putting out the Christmas stuff a few weeks ago....

The final picture here is a picture of the back of this first page....

I am really excited about this project and I can't wait to see what the Design Team Members do with this challenge!

I think this page looks like a pretty pink present!
I hope you have enjoyed this little preview of Challenge #3! To see the finished projects... come on over and visit us at on November 18th (that's when the projects are due!) and you'll get to see what everyone has done plus see this project completed! : )
Happy Scrapping!!!!
