DTBST#119 - Go For Broke! (Bubble Bath)

Happy Thursday everyone! Today is my first post as a Design Team member for Sassy Studio Designs.  I have joined their team for their weekly Dare to Be Sassy Thurdsday challenges.

Did you know April 5th is "Go For Broke Day"?  This week we've got a fun Dare to Be Sassy Thursday challenge for you over at Sassy Studio Designs, it's to make an extravagant card, using more than one patterned paper and lots of embellishments (especially some of those you've been hoarding), so go for broke and use up your embellishments! I hope you will join in the fun this week.

Here is my card that I made to show you using all brown see any of the pictures larger, just click on the image!.....
