CalGals Challenge

Friday night was our CalGals meeting and we usually take turns to do a challenge. Last night Allison decided to change things a bit (yeah! a bit... as in NO sketch to follow!) It was a challenge alright for it took me a couple of hours to finish my card. Lets just say I packed every thing but my Mojo!
I stamped the image twice on two different DP (gcd) and then heat embossed. You can't really see it, but the big butterfly and the stopwatch is the same DP as the green and white. I must of changed the layout and the main card stock so many times and at the end of it all..... I ended up using Allison's card stock.
I'm always looking forward to our CalGals night, but when I get there.... I'm usually lost and just want to see what the other ladies are doing. Friday night was a good night cause I made 2 cards!
This one is the Sperelli (I call it threading) technique which I borrowed from Nancy.

This one is actually pretty easy to do once you get the hang of it. The only thing that was hard, was cutting the template. Yeah I know... call me crazy cause that's what they were calling me that night. LOL I'm just happy I made 2 cards.


Thanks for bloogin' by!

I think you did an awesome job on both. Besides, Calgals is mostly for chatting and eating...everyone knows that!
