My good friend Tina told me about the challenge at http://simply-create-alford.blogspot.com/2011/01/new-challenge.html and I loved the fresh look of the inspiration board. I picked out all 4 colours, hearts, the blue letter, the cushion and bedspread from the board to focus on my card. The board looked so bright and fresh to so I wanted my card to have that look .
When I decided to make my card I did not realize(and perhaps should not admit) it would take me three whole days to make. My Mojo dropped to zero on the very day I decided to start it. I shuffled different papers around, pulled out every embellishment under the sun and filled a whole table with enough stash for a shop. No, still no go. I left it until the next day, assembled it and finally thought I had it. When I got up on the following day I was not happy with it, so decided to change all the paper and card. Phew! At last it came together. I won't go into too much detail of how I came to the finished card but I will say I had to search through my "bitty box" to find all the embellishments to put on the hearts and that was a feat in itself. One good thing did came out of all the time spent on this card, I used my Cricut. Yes, it was dusted off and I cut out the hearts to go behind the doilies and a flower in matching colour. I am very pleased with the finished card. Was it worth all the time I spent on it? Yes. That is what challenges are all about. I hope you like the look of it.
As it took me so long to make and I wanted to share it with you all, I have entered it into several challenges which are listed below.
