This card was one of my June camp cards.  One of my customers asked for a project using a wheel.  I love the Alhambra Jumbo Wheel new in the 2012-2013 catalog.  I think it has lots of possibilities. 

I went to a retreat over the weekend with my Stampin’ UP! peeps.  Our upline Pam D’Urso invited us to visit her new home in Mahomet, IL.  We are always up for a road trip.  The highlight of the weekend was a shoebox exchange.  I chose to use this card because it uses a wheel to create designer paper and I wanted my peeps to try out making the double bow. 

Ooh,  Yadi just hit a home run to tie the game.  (You know I’m watching the game this time of night).  I digress.

So what do you think Alhambra means?  I did a little research and in my interpretation, a fitting description would be, ”rich ornamentation.    I like it and the card too.
