112414 CKC November Members Showcase Blog Hop

You have reached a stop in the November Counterfeit Kit Challenge blog member's hop.

November's challenges were:
Challenge #1 - Be Inspired By Pinterest 
Challenge #2 - Decorative Doors 
Challenge #3 - Cards that POP!
As I had already done Challenge #1 & #2 I am doing Challenge #3 for the hop.

There was a great link on Challenge #3 to this Crate Paper blog post
First I got inspired by that cute rocket paper in my kit.

 The paper actually has dimensional shadows printed in the pattern,
so I fussy-cut this little rocket out for the envelope. Reads as 
a "pop" but should travel through the mail just fine!

 I popped one of the rockets on the card along with some of the stars.
I couldn't believe I had that "Star Upon Star" music in my kit!

I popped the sentiment & the gold Wow! embellis, too, 
matted with black to mimic the mat on the rocket paper.

Next up is this card for someone special.

I put some large gold glitter in the center of the sunflower to make it "pop".
More dimension was added behind the flower petals & leaves.

The last card:

Although this could have been a blank card,
I have sent it off for a birthday this month.

I rarely make cards, but when I do I find it super-fun!
Who knew I had all those goodies in my kit?

Enjoy everyone's chance to share their projects by visiting every hop stop.
Half the fun of the CKC blog is the inspiring work done by everyone!

Thanks for stopping by!
