Tidying up

was my main intention when I approached my craft/dining room table this morning.  With this miserable head cold, my brain is barely functioning and creating is just too much to ask of it right now.  Mindlessly putting things back where they belong was even a stretch and possibly dangerous.  I may never find those items again.  But, out of the chaos and mind fog, I did make this CAS card using the negative from a Cherry Lynn Designs die cut, a piece of glitter paper that was thankfully near the top of the paper pile, some fall ribbon (if you can see the gold leaves on it), an old, old, old CTMH sentiment stamp and some SNS antiquities embossing powder.
I cleared the negative off the table, but now I have EP, a heat gun, and stamp to put away.  This didn't work out the way I planned. 

I might as well enter this in a few challenges:
Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe 194 - My Style (Since the title of my blog is "That Might Look Good on a Card", I guess My Style is just picking up something and finding a way to use it, like this negative.  The gals at my card club often bring me their negatives and wait to see just how I end up using them.)
Scrappyland Challenge #2 - Must use a die that Scrappyland sells (Cherry Lynn) and heat embossing.
Sparkle N Sprinkle September Challenge - Anything Goes with glitter, embossing powder or flock. (I used EP)
Cuttlebug Mania Challenge - Anything Die Cut

I think my cold needs a nap now.

  8. I'm back again :-). Guess I should read all of the challenges you entered instead of having tunnel vision for the particular one I'm looking for :-). Anyway, I think this is gorgeous and still love how you used the negative portion of the die. I'm so glad you shared it with us for the Sparkle N Sprinkle Creative Challenge.
