Nov. 1st? Say it ain't so!!

Happy Thursday, my sweet friends!! Say WHAT?? Today is the first day of November?! Already?! Why . . . Thanksgiving is right around the corner! And that means Christmas will be here before we know it! Sooooo . . . with that in mind, it would make perfect sense for me to have made a Christmas card for this week's challenge at Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog! But, alas, that is absolutely not the case! hehehe! Since today is the first challenge of the month . . . that means this week's theme is . . .
Perfect!! I LOVE "anything goes" challenges! I decided to do something a little bit different . . . soooooo, I made this fun little "tag" card!
This sweetheart is called "Kisses" and is available HERE in Mo's online store. Take a peek at the back . . . the tag has been left blank for a personal note.
My card "recipe" . . .
Image printed on Cryogen "metallic" cardstock
Black cardstock: Stampin' Up

Here's a look at the layering and dimension . . .
And, last but not least . . . the "artsy" view . . .
And there ya have it . . . my "Anything Goes" tag card!! Oh . . . please be sure to pop on over to Mo's DP2 Challenge Blog HERE to check out the gorgeous projects created by my lovely and talented DT sisters!
