I had every intention of entering this card over at Poetic Artistry. There was some terrific blog candy to be had. All you had to do was make a card, based on the sketch provided and get it in before the counter reached 25,000. When I printed the sketch, the counter was at 24,818. Lots of time, right! NOT! I made the fatal error of going to bed for the night. Got up this morning and WHAM! the counter was at 25,224 and the contest was closed. What to do? I loved the sketch and wasn't willing to give it up, so I mosied on over to check out the challenge at SCS. Lo and behold, I had the colours required, the layout I wanted to use (with a couple of little changes, since I couldn't enter her contest anyway) and had already picked the image. Here's the card for CC114. This ladybug image is part of the "Les Insectes" from Maryse Carrier.
Lesson Learned: She who hesitates is lost! Hopefully, this won't happen to me again! No more sleeping for this chicky, believe me!
