You Know the Saying....

If you don't succeed, try, try, again. 

And that's why I am back! Yesterday, I challenged myself to complete a couple of challenges. By the time I finished cooking dinner, running errands, and recieving a recap of the day's highlights from my number one son, much of my time had been consumed. By the time I sat down, the premiere of Memphsis Blues was going off and HawthoRNe was airing. So, needless to say cards #2, #3, and #4 were not created. Of course, this evening didn't differed much from last night. Although I made enough dinner to have leftovers, I only created one card. On top of that, the masculine card theme went out of the window and cards #3 and #4 are still waiting to be created. The good news is, I was able to use tonight's card in two seperate challenges. So without futher ado, take a look at the inspiration sketch from Waltzing Mouse and the colors from the Color Throwdown.....




...and this is what I was inspired to create....





This was such a fun card to make. You may noticed from the photo that some of the smaller dollies have a shimmer. If you enlarge the photo, you will see those dollies are covered in clear microbeads--a super medium to work with.

I hope I was able to provide a little inspiration for you. Thanks for stopping by The Peddler's Gallery and come back real soon.
