CCC Week 17...

Here is my entry for week 17 of the challenge, for all the
details please go and visit the lovely Linda.

I almost did not do this week's challenge as I have been away
with my family to "The Happiest Place on Earth" and just got
home last night. Also I never seem to do well with charms
and thought maybe I would just wait for the new challenge
on Monday.

In the end I decided that I have kept up so far so really
should do it. I won't go into all the details but had a few
errors along the way and spent most of my time trying
to fix them. I even decided to start from scratch but had
an issue with not lining up the paper on my die correctly
so it did not cut out the whole note card, aarghh!
This was when I decided I had to fix the mess I had
made on the first one, so this is it!
Now I am looking forward to seeing the next challenge on Monday.

It may have been frustrating but it was worth it. What you have created is beautiful. I love the image and words and background.

I love this piece, Marlene! And glad to hear that you've been able to get away for a little while. Don't you love fall break here in Arizona? My boss's daughter was out of school so they went to Canada this week and our office was closed. It's back to work on Monday!

Linda Ledbetter said...

Marlene, I'm so happy you were able to fit in the CCC after your vacation, and I hope you had a great time with Mickey and the gang!

Your card is gorgeous, and I LOVE the Art Nouveau image you used for the fragment! I'd never have thought you'd had any challenges making this at all. It turned out beautifully!

I'm very glad you decided to do this one after all, cuz it came out Great!

I love your background, and I love how the colours in the fragment pop out.


Terry said...

Wow, you have created a stunning piece of art! Love your charm!

Jane said...

I too took my sweet time doing this challenge. It just didn't appeal to me, time was short, etc etc etc. I love your piece. The colors are beautiful, and the charm fits perfectly. Maybe we'll see some Mickey Mouse in a future piece? It was pretty quiet around here this week with all the families gone for fall break - glad you took advantage of it. With no more kids in school - we sometimes lose track of the school calendar. They say low 90's or even 80's this week...Hurray.

Lori said...

I think it turned out wonderfully, Marlene! Love the image you used under the fragment. Really complements the background.

Carolyn said...

Marlene, your charm is delightful. I missed this challenge because of other commitments and after viewing the entries....WOW...

Can't wait to see what you do this week.

PS Thanks for visiting my blog.
