The challenge at 365 Cards for Day 283 was "Pick 5". Have someone else pick 5 items from your stash and use them on a card......easy enough.....right??? Well I ask my dear husband to go to my craft room and pick 5 things and I would make a card........he wasn't very eager to do that......so I asked him to write down 5 things and I would make a card from those things. I am thinking he will probably choose things like ribbon, flower, printed paper, button, string. He told me he would have to think about it for awhile......I knew from the look in his eye I was in trouble. OK so 24 hours passed and I asked him if he had the list of 5 things........he said he needed to think of one more thing. I am really getting worried now because what I thought was going to be an EASY AS PIE challenge......... I am now thinking is not going to be so easy. At this point I was really thinking maybe he had been trying to call Pam at 365 Cards and they were plotting together to try to really stump me on this one. Yesterday he gave me the list of 5 things..........I read them and read them again and again and I am sure I was white as a ghost.
BOY WAS I EVER WRONG!!!!!!
Here is the list of things he wanted me to use on the card for the Pick 5 challenge.
OK from the list I know for sure he has talked with Pam and they are getting a big laugh out of this one. Well he should know me better than that......after 40+ years of being married that if you give me a challenge I get my mind to working overtime to figure out the solution.
OK OK are you all still with me......I know this is getting rather long.
So without further ado here is my card for this challenge.
Cloth - is the sentiment from Joann's
Leaf - silk one from my stash
Metal - embossed copper metal sheeting
Cellophane - well I had to dig this out of the trash because I don't have any in my stash...I made some ribbon with it
Foam - fun foam flowers and I did add a gem brad to the center
