I can see clearly now.....

My card is done! While I was sleeping/dreaming this morning, I saw visions of the card I wanted to do for Amy Rohla's challenge on SCS. I got out of bed, sketched it out on paper and grabbed a quick bowl of cereal. I then went to work on the card. Everything went together just as I had planned it. Yeah! Check another challenge card off my list. Guess what? When I went to post it I discovered that I hadn't followed the guidelines. My card was too big! I can't tell you how many times I've done this. I really should have written it down. All well, it still didn't change the way I felt about the card. I still like the way it turned out. I just have to make another card that fits the guidelines if I want to check that challenge off my list. I should have known something was up when everything was going so smooth. LOL
So the challenge was to make a card with something clear on it so I chose to try an acetate card (I did one a while back and it didn't work out so well). This one turned out just fine.

Stamps: Hearts & Stars (Rhonna Farrer). Papers: White, Pumpkin, Red, Acetate. Inks: Real Red Pigment Ink. Accessories: Cricut, George Cartridge, Mini Mono Cartridge, Circle Punch, Ribbon, Cuttlebug, Swiss Dots EF, Pumpkin Marker.

The sentiment was made using my Cricut and George cartridge set on 1 inch for the white and shadowed 1 inch for the red. I also cut the orange panel from my Mini Monograms cartridge and then I just cut off the scalloped edges on the top and bottom. This card is 3.5x 8.5 and fits in a legal size envelope.

I'm gonna clean my stamp room tomorrow before I can stamp anything else. You should see it! It looks like a bomb went off in there. Sometimes I create better if things are out on my desk but when I get down to a 10 x10 inch square space and piles of paper falling over, it makes it kind of hard to be creative. KWIM?

Have a great day!

Thanks for stopping in to see me! TTFN
