    This was so interesting. I am a programmer and actually wrote a small program for myself that is a random card description generator … too many choices, so I let the program narrow them down for me. Example below. This reminded me of that and was so fun. I’ll get the download and use it. Thanks! Kay

    TECHNIQUE: Bling
    COLOR: Black and White
    TYPE: Birthday – Masculine
    SHAPE: Standard (A2, A6, etc.)

    Love the finished card. And thanks for showing how your thought process worked to achieve the final project. I seem to spend way to much time trying to put a card together but glad to know others do as well. I am going to give this challenge a try!

    Unlikely that I could ever come up with anything that looks as good as your final product. Nonetheless, a very good exercise in focus and creativity.

    SUPER idea Erin!I knew so well how you felt…i am always trying things one hundred ways before really sticking them down.

    Such a fun challenge!!! I can’t wait to get home from work and play along!!!

    Oh thank you! thank you! thank you! Erin you have made my day. How many times have I gone through that very process of pushing elements around, adding in, taking off…etc. You make me feel so much better about my creative process-pretty much it’s the same as yours. With maybe one difference…you end up using your first choices and mine rarely end up on the card:) But I may try your “roll the dice” game-if I can muster up the bravery!!
    And I love your end result too. Love the stamped texture you added to the leaves and the scalloped circle for the sentiment. Really like this video a lot!!

    Be sure to click the blue link under the download image, not the image itself. Hopefully that will work better for you! 🙂

    Excellent video, Erin, and fabulous results for your card. Here I thought you gals always just whipped up your cards in no time vs. using a “push and see” if you like it or not process. This challenge would be so much fun to try. Thanks for sharing!

    What a fun challenge I was almost not going to do it.
    I could not believe I got balloon image with the couch sentiment and then the sentiment i found actually worked.
    I will definitely do this again thank you.
    I don’t have a die so I used

    Oh this is a great idea – I often sit and look at all my supplies, and feel clueless on where to begin. This will definitely eliminate some decision :o)
