Today I'm sharing a card I made that gave me some difficulty. It just didn't want to come together for me. I had to leave it alone and come back to it the next day. Sometimes things just work out that way. Other times a card comes together in a flash. In any case, it did finally work out and I'm able to share it with you.
So, this card came about because of a couple of challenges. First was Festive Friday. They have another lovely inspiration photo. Check it out...
I also kept in mind CAS-ual Fridays challenge which is "three thirds", which is to have three of something. I've got three stars and the word joy is three letters. Also, it's Addicted to Stamps and More's "Holiday" challenge right now so this fits in nicely! And over at Virginia's View it's all about stitching. You can do real stitches or faux ones. Mine are faux. :-)
So how I made this was I cut out my stars and Joy using my Slice. I put a strip of green glitter tape down on my white panel then attached my wood grain stars. Next I used my white gel pen to make my faux stitches on my joy then using some foam dots I attached it to my panel. I added some blingy stars on the smaller wood grain stars. Then I attached my panel with more foam dots to my card base.

So, is anyone else all excited and pumped about PaperCrafts Gallery Idol 2014?! I am! I was lucky and honored enough to make the top 20 last year. I was among some super talented designers and often wondered how I got there. LOL! I'm trying out again this year too. Open auditions started yesterday and go until May 19th. The theme is to use decorative tape. I don't use it much so this gives me a chance to really experiment. If you're interested in knowing more look HERE. :-)
Well, that's all I have for today. Thanks for visiting and have a good one!
