Stampersuzz *Day 3*

Okay, get ready to feast your eyes on this beauty from Sue:

This could not be any prettier! I love the pinks with the olive green! And look at that cracked glass technique!! WOW! The ribbon and perfect bow are fabulous. Of course, I love the intricate butterfly that tops off this amazing card!

Here is my take on Sue's card. This was definitely one of those cards that ended up a LOT different than how I pictured it in my mind. Does that ever happen to you? You head in one direction, and find that you are on the opposite side of town than you planned on? haha! :)

Thanks again for stopping by to see Sue's cards!

Cardstock and Thread, Twine (Darice, Inc.), Dimensional Adhesive (All Night Media), Gems (K & Co.), Pearls (Recollection), Compass Mask (Tim Holtz)

Sue's card reminds me of a gorgeous old family heirloom...love her rich colors and that cracked glass is done so perfectly. You've used some gorgeous rich color and wonderful shading and distressing on your amazing card. I love the detail on the sentiment banner and every wonderful layer on this beautiful and very interesting card.

Sue's card is perhaps the most beautiful card ever! I would love to know how she did that cracked glass technique. Your inspiration card is awesome! And yes, many cards I make are NOT what I had in mind; they just kind of make themselves. Thanks for the sharing!!

Sue's card today is one of my favourites and I just love taking in all the fantastic details again.

Your card is absolutely gorgeous! Love the design and beautiful colours and the crackled centrepiece looks amazing. 95% of the time my cards turn out totally different to the original plan (if there is one to start with!).
