Last Gellery Idol Submission and KAH-wink-E-dink Winner

I managed to squeeze in one more card for the Gallery Idol Open Call. Not to brag, but I really like this card! I guess that is not bragging, just stating that I am very pleased with the final product. The competition is stiff for the Gallery idol. I am just proud of myself for entering a few cards. I do suggest you go check out the submissions. If you submitted, Good Luck in the process. 

Actually this card incorporates multiple challenges you will find the list at the bottom of this post, but I will highlight a few.  The card is based on the following sketch.

Pile it On's challenge is "Outside the Box". My card is outside the box in a few ways, I did not stamp for this card. As you know this is outside the box for me. Plus my embellishments hang off the edge of the car. This actually qualifies me for The Crafty Pad Challenge, too.

My favorite part of this card is the phone cord. I used my kraft twine and a sharpie to color it black. Then I wrapped it around one of my Ikea hooks to create the curl and used clothes pins to secure the twist. To make sure it holds the curl, I painted the Modge Podge mixture from my flowers on the twine.  What do you think of that?

I also wanted to let you know I won for last week's challenge at KAH-wink-E-dink. The challenge was to create your own embellishment. I submitted my "Thanks Berry Much "card from this post. How exciting! 

Wow, this trying to do multiple challenges is time consuming. Not sure if I will be able to do this every time I post a card, but it was fun for today. Hope you have a great time visiting all the links.

Happy Day!
