One of the reasons why I love jet lag is the fact that when I am wide-awake at 3:00 a.m., I can make some really strong coffee, go to my craft room and work on my cards in peace. Everything is just so peaceful at dawn. It really helps my creativity. The only downside is I am already fading by 4:00 p.m.
The card below turned out to be so stinkin’ cute! To be honest, I didn’t picture this card to look like it does now because I changed my mind quite a few times while I was creating it. I wanted to fuzzy-cut the image but I was worried about the Antennae. I decided in the end to cut it out and replaced it with a die-cut piece using a butterfly die. I almost gave up at one point, but decided to keep going until I was happy with the results.
