CD 58...and the fastest card I have ever created



It started out as a lousy day - I've been sick, had to take Michelle to CSAPs, had trouble backing out of my parking spot at the crowded hotel where they were hosting the tests, arrived home to find Matthew had overslept and needed to be rushed to his tests, plus some other unpleasant news...so I headed to my therapy room to spend the hour before I needed to go pick Alyssa up.  I saw these colors for the Color Dare and loved them so much I decided to let them be the focus of my card.  It took all of fifteen minutes to create this card and take the photos!  After looking at the photos, I realized some of the jewels were slightly askew, so I did fix those afterwards.



Thanks for stopping by,
Marie with a : )
