Wow! This card took ALL afternoon to make! As you've noticed, I have not been keeping up with my creative therapy every day, and so, the mojo really does slow down. Plus it's that TOM when concentration is at it's l-o-w-e-s-t. But it's finally done, and I'm pleased with the outcome. I participated in SCS's Way to Use It challenge, Something old, Something new. The current hostess Julia S. is stepping down and another hostess, Kim Hughes going to be our hostess! Today's challenge was a collection of all the WT challenges that have been hosted! You could pick one or many. In making this card, I didn't have any in mind, but after it was completed, I realized I used many of them! Glitter (WT02), Vellum (WT03), Tags (WT07), Ribbon (WT09), Buttons (WT11), Pop dots/dimensionals (WT15), Sponges (WT17), Printed Paper (WT39), Sentiments (WT42), Cutting Corners (WT66), & Product Parade (new new PTI set I hadn't really played with yet!) (WT90).
AND, I also participated in the weekly sketch challenge too, SC310.
No wonder it took me all afternoon, LOL!
It was fun to dig out my vellum again. Haven't used that on a card in a long time. And I played with my Flower Soft some more, putting it around the edge of my snowman nestie layer.

and the inside:

And isn't this pretty? A DF gave me this lighted branch. I was wandering around my corner with it and discovered it would fit right down inside my card display holder. What a beautiful display it makes.

And that's it for your Thursday fix!
