Out from under the rock... The Challenge #27

It is just amazing what a girl will discover when out from under her rock!  You all know I try to play cards at Fusion, and The Card Concept... who knew there are many more in this fabulous [Lesley Croghan] line-up of challenges?  Well.  I do now!!


Whilst I was in the "Shades of" mode, I created this little total-mash-up-between-the-sketch-and-colors card for The Challenge #27 =]


I adore this Anna Griffin: Olivia collection of papers - you've seen it before many times here. This time I used the SSS Stitched squares dies, a Memory Box Willow dragonfly, and another Mom from Technique Tuesday, and presto! I won't tell you how many hours it took to do this presto thing... you really don't want to know.

Gorgeous card, Michele! I especially love the stitched detail framing this lovely flower image and dragonfly diecut. As for "Presto" in a craft room (especially mine), what's THAT??? Must be a new adhesive product ... (LOL) ;-)

Your card is so beautiful, Michelle!!!! That piece of patterned paper is lovely and the dragonfly is just stunning!!! Love the stitching detail!!! And believe me I sit for hours very often to do a single card!!! You're definitely not alone there, Michelle - I think everybody has that frustration some times!!!! But you've done a great job with this card and I really like it a LOT!!!!
Have a great day!!!

Love your card and I would really love to hear more about that "presto thing" you have going on. Maybe you could market it???
Any way, I love your card, so sweet and beautiful and I am sure mom will love it. And that patterned paper, stunning.
