ATC Wish Big!!!

Do any of your procrastinate? I am the worst! For example, I have been eyeing this fab challenge over at ATC all month. When do I finally get it done, the day it is due LOL! The challenge was to use the picture below as inspiration and make a shape card that you have never made before.
Here is my card
Okay, I have to admit this was a super hard challenge. The inspiration photo was fine, but the shaped card was a challenge. Not so much doing a shape, but doing one I had never done before. Thankfully I remembered the neat card templates that come in the color couture downloads from Dawn at PTI and then it was a piece of cake for me since I hadn't used these ever.

This was a stinking fun card to make. I have really been enjoying my wood grains background stamp set. It is one of those that I will have and use for a very long time. Did you notice the paper clip and library clip on the card? I thought they added the most fun little accents. This was a tough challenge, but I am super glad I kept at it and got it done in time.

It's a good life!
