I have never spent two and a half hours making a card and anybody at the SU factory would be rubbing their hands together with glee and seeing dollar signs. Many, many do-overs. I don't own crytal effects or diamond glaze but after conferring with my VSN hostess pals, we decided to try a clear gel decoupage glue to do this. It worked. I like the effect but I'm exhausted. I guess that means it was a good challenge. It's a good thing I don't sell my cards, as this one would cost $39.95!

WOW!! It's gorgeous!! I'm glad you figured out a way to play, because this is absolutely lovely! I'll bet someone would pay...you just have to market it as more than a card ;) Frame it and watch the buyers clammering at your door!
Beautiful, beautiful job...I love the sparkle on the butterflies and the embossed border at the bottom! tfs :)

You need to take joy in your card, silly girl. It's beautiful and I think you found a great substitute for Crystal effects. Love those colors together and I need to get me some of those cb

Beautiful card! I love the colors! Mine cost me 70.00, because I had to run to the craft store to get some reinkers, and then some brads, then some of the new paper they had...! I think the challenge moderators have kick backs some how! :)
