Arghh! There She Goes!

Good Morning!

(Please scroll down if you're hopping along on the DoodleFactory Blog Hop!! Thank you!)

I'm not sure if I'm coming down with something or what but I've woken up with somewhat of a sore throat then it slowly subsides over the course of the day. Hopefully this isn't the start of anything bad. I definitely can't come down with something a week before all the releases!! Eek! I might have to grab myself a lemon and make some lemon honey drinks to soothe this throat.

Ok, onto today's Whimsical Wednesday challenge! This week's challenge is an inspirational one and it's brought to us by little Jack Diedrich!

Arrrgh!! Me matey! It be a treasure map ye seek! LOL Yes, we have a treasure map as our inspiration and I just want to be the first to say that I completely bombed out on this challenge! I thought I'd be clever and combine this weeks There She goes challenge (TSG25) which is to use dry embossing on your project and make it more of an elegant card, but it didn't quite turn out that way...

I don't know if it's the colors, or the layout or just the idea, but whatever it is, it didn't work out all that well. :( Sometimes things just don't go the way you want!

For some much more brill ant examples of this inspiration challenge, check out what the other daredevils did with it!

Oooh I like how you did the swirl background paper to look like is almost like an island within and island.

Randi said...

You are crazy girl! Maybe a little to much vokba?? ;o) Because, I think this is absolutely gorgeous!! And, it looks stunning with the actual pirate map!
I really LOVE how you framed it! What a wonderful idea. Did you make that frame?? It's fantastic! And that scrolly paper!! Wow!

Danni said...

I think you did a wonderful job! I think we are our own worst critics!
Hope you aren't getting sick!! Take care of you!

Ohh you girls and your VOBKA....wait VOKBA? LOL! I think this is awesome, Sandra!!! Hope you are feeling better and can sleep it off!

Rebecca Ednie said...

I think it's great! Love the rolled paper! Maybe you'd like it better if it were closer to square, still rectangular though. Maybe once the voBka has worn off you can trim it down. No sharp instruments til then!

Darla said...

Hey Sandra - I really like your card! The scrolled paper is fun - and the dry embossing is a great addition. The framed image looks neat too. I think you're your own worst critic - it's great!

Mary J said...

Such a cool card - love it!

Heather Schlatter said...

It just amazes me what people will say in comments some times but I will not go any further with that subject!!!

I love this card and the rolled paper is awesome!!! Do you have a Balcony (sP) maybe you can burn paper out there your comment made me smile and laugh out loud!!!

I love the Scene and the frame and I really think this card turned out super duper amazing and you always amaze me, but you know that already!!!!

Awesome job Sandra!!!
