OMG...never again! Do you ever make a card where you have to REMAKE something more than once?...well, more than three times? On this one I did.
I remade the rectangular white panel...didn't like the scoring, didn't like corner rounding, didn't do the piercing even, didn't get the punch in the right place...
I remade the base card because I set it on the ink pad.
This has movement...it is a view master card. In case you don't know what that is, it has a spinning wheel with multiple images that show through a window. My tulip is one of those images. You can see the notched wheel that moves on the right side of my card about even with the top of the flowerpot. There are three more images on the wheel.
I got the general idea for the shape of this card from one that Debbie Olson did quite a while back. I don't have a link to it since I had it saved on my computer. The bottom edge is created by tracing around a cd.

Oh, you brave woman! Bonus points to you for making this crazy, technical card. I thought about it this type of card and then remembered the first and last time I made one. For all your frustration, your card is beautiful!

I love your view master card and don't think I've ever seen one. I'm sure all your images are flowers that fit into the pretty pot. What a delightful card. Yes, I'm made something more than once...several times. But, look how pretty it turned out by doing it over. I love it!
