Carbon Copied......with Karen Baker!!!

Hey Y'all!!!

Happy Wednesday......y'all!!!! Yay for hump day....almost the weekend!! Today I have the honor of doing a Carbon Copied with the one and only....Karen Baker!!!

What can I say about Karen.....I just love her!!! She is one of the sweetest people that I know and I just LOVE her cardmaking style!!! If y'all don't know what Carbon Copied is all about....Here is how Karen defines it in her words:

A way for me to get to know you better.
A way for bloggers to get to know each other better and a way for challenges to be recognized! 
An outlet to see the creative possibilities of one stamp set!
Simple, honest to goodness fun!
Here's basically how it works: Same stamp set. Same challenge. Same post date. Same post time.
Karen and I decided on playing in the JUGS Color Challenge
We also decided on using SRM Stickers.....we used the Forever set:
Here is my card and.......CHECK IT!!!!
