With hours to spare

With hours to spare I completed an entry for the 2nd week of CCC at Studio L3!   Nothin' like working under a deadline!

I started a project earlier in the week, it just wouldn't come together.   In an effort to create something for the challenge this week, I created this ATC.  The background is a Kleenex box, the flower is out of grungepaper/board "leftover" from Tim's birdcage die. For the flower I misted Mustard Seed re-inker mixed with Sunflower Sparkle Perfect Pearls. For the stem and leaves I used Forest Moss  Distress Ink directly on the paper then misted with Peeled Paint mixed with Blue Smoke Perfect Pearls.  The sentiment (Great Impressions) was stamped in Staz-on Jet Black Ink.   The lady bug is from my stash.  Everything was attached  with Glossy Accents.

Hope you all a great weekend!  Have a fabulous week!


  1. Girlfriend, you finished in plenty of time! I'm a last-minute kind of girl myself, so I can relate to the "working under pressure" experience.

    Now, as for your altered Kleenex box: It's AWESOME! What a fun, original and completely delightful way to approach the Fragments Basics Challenge! Darling imagery, great composition... you rocked it!

    I'm so glad you stayed on board for the second challenge, and I very much hope to see you for Week 3!

  2. Hi Linda~your creation is so sweet! Way to stay with it & let us all see how great it turned out! I've had fun doing these challenges, though this CCC #2 had me a bit frustrated. But, like you, I stuck with it & finished my entry on time too (with just a bit to spare). Yay for us! Now, onto CCC #3~can't wait! Have a marvy day, Suzie

  3. Fantastic! Very creative with the GB/GP pieces!

  4. Very cool! Hey, did you steal my Kleenex box idea????.....rofl... that's ok, cause it gives me an idea of what to do with Great use of the fragment, and the flower is way cool.

  5. Hi Linda, Ihave sooooo many insides of the birdcage left over from the Chaos challenge...thanks for the idea of what to do with them!! I love the ATC ;]]]
