Play Along: Preserves

Hello all my crafty and bloggy friends! Have you guys heard of the new Facebook Group called PLAY ALONG? You can find it... HERE.

For this PLAY ALONG we are making a set of cards and a box to put them in. Today I'm going to show you my third card for my set. I'm using the My Mind's Eye NOTABLE Play Along Collection Kit. One of the cool things about being in the PLAY ALONG Facebook group is that you can sign up to Play Along with the ones you like and then have an opportunity to purchase the PLAY ALONG kit from Theresa, The Scrapbooking Queen. The Play Along kits are "sample packs" of the entire collection (at a smaller price than the entire collection), and just perfect for having enough goodies to make the projects. Plus it gives you a 'taste' of the entire collection kit. 

This is what the NOTABLE Play Along Kit looks like (some of the papers and buttons may vary in each kit):

Here's my card #3 for this Play Along:
