Peachy Keen Halloween Paola Style

Good morning, stamping friends!! Today I'm sharing a card with you that was made by my very sweet and dear friend Paola. Paola very graciously agreed to participate in this week's Peachy Keen Challenge, even though she knew she would be enjoying a cruise to Alaska by now. I happily agreed to upload and post her card for the challenge, and I thought I'd even go one better and make my blog post today Paola's.
As you can see from the photo, she is a very gifted and creative card maker. Her creations are always so detailed, and she puts things together just beautifully!! I love the clever way that Paola made her zig-zag on this card, and the texture and dimension that she adds to her creations gorgeously showcase her talent.
WOW! The inside of this card is as gorgeous as the outside! Oh my, don't ever ask to see the inside of my cards, because they are blank until the time that I actually send them, and mine NEVER look this good!!
I hope you have enjoyed Paola's card today, and hopefully we can talk her in to starting a blog of her own, so that we won't miss any of her fabulous creations. You can view some more of her work in her Gallery here on Splitcoaststampers. Have a wonderful cruise my dear friend, and thank you so very much for working this challenge in to your busy schedule! Bon Voyage!!
Love Ya!

Paola does fabulous work doesn't she?!? I think she underestimates herself sometimes. Look at all that detail! Can't WAIT to hang out with her and you and all the Sistahs! :D

See I'm either embellie challenged or just plain embellie stingy. Paola pulls out all the stops and knows how to combine everything to make a stunning card. This is great Paola and you are too Lorie! Oh I didn't forget about you Allen. Hehehe.
