Since I am having an early morning (2AM) with my insomniac dog, I decided to up load this card. It is one of those special cards that I make for my sons. My older son, Josh, is graduating high school. This is a 1 3/4 tri shutter card - I made 2 cards, cut one part ofg of the second card, then attached them with two sided tape. For the FR4222 challenge there really are 2 flags, just not national flags. There are popped up things for the WT480 challenge everywhere - seversl sun flowers, the guy's pants and the words on the first panel, the guy's shirt on the second panel, and the cap and gown on the third panel. Everything is colored with copics or colored pencil and gamisol. A LOT of fussy cutting. Susie W may amputate limbs, but I slit throats. The necks of those dearie dolls are way too thin. Does anyone have a suggestion of good scissors for fussy cutting? I like to think it's my tools and not skill that causes me so much trouble with fussy cutting. THL, Francie

I'm still totally wowed by this. I hope he keeps it forever :D.
Fussy cutting - for fine detail, I resort to a scalpel (sharp!), always. I'd use it for everything, in fact, except it's much harder on your fingers than using scissors. I love all your popped-up elements - the guy on the front is so much fun but perhaps most of all I noticed the little sunflowers here and there.
