While I can't share the actual challenge details, I can share some things about this card. For starters, who'd have thunk I could create something so delicate!! DH saw it on my desk and said, "That's very nice, who sent it to you"!!
I love this Cherry Lynn background die, but it was a monster to cut....until dear Peggy (jasonw1), sent me a link to a brilliant youtube where you use dryer sheets. If you type "dryer sheets for metal dies" into Google you will get a good selection of you-tube tutorials.
To give the card a bit of ompf I placed acetate behind the die cut and an extra frame inside the card (this also covered up the d/s tape). The other dies were carefully woven around bits of the main die cut. I was going to stamp a sentiment inside the card, but I wasn't sure how it would look so I stamped a sentiment on to acetate and placed it inside to see what it would look like through the intricate diecut....it didn't look right, hence its blank. I will write on the back of the card.
I tried to channel my inner Angie (ohmypapers!) and set up a lovely photograph complete with glass beads and trinkets. DH walked in just as I was about to take the photo and he said, "Let me give you a hand to move this stuff out of your way". LOL, he really is a keeper.
Thank you for looking.

Haha!! Your hubby is so funny! Yes, he is a keeper, huh!?! Wow Susie, this is very frilly and intricate but I believe I have one of yours from last year...the snowy scene, deer, fence, incredibly gorgeous, that is just as frilly and intricate! It is still one of my favorite cards of all!

Wow, it is intricate, and very beautiful, too. I cut my intricate dies with die, wax paper, Cs, dryer sheet. What I haven't figured out yet is which adhesive to use on these! Your photo is lovely staged as is.
