View Master Card...

Ok so never before has a card taken me this long to make! Now it could be that I'm not a quick learner like the rest of you but holy cow....I almost gave up on this card!
This is for today's challenge on SCS. It's a View Master Card. I think it's really cool but I'm not so sure I will attempt to make one again. Three tries....2 and a half hours stamped the Ladybug in all the colours and one rock and rolled in Saffron and Wasabi.
If you have never done this View Master Card before...go give it a whirl and let me know how you make out!

Supplies Used all Stampin'Up!
Stamp Set: Garden Whimsy
Cardstock: Wild Wasabi, Real Red, Barely Banana and Whipser White
Inks: Wild Wasabi, Real Red and So Saffron
Accessories: Photo Corner Punch, 1 3/8"Circle Punch, Mat Pack and Paper Piercer, Rich Regal Brads and Dimensionals

Yesterday when I was cleaning out the computer room I discovered my missing sketch book. It's been missing since probably I hadn't noticed!

Anyway this card layout was one I jotted down from a blog or SCS, I'm not sure. So if it is someones sketch please let me know and I can give proper credit.

The Real Red Cardstock is on dimensionals and I ATTEMPTED to stamp the bees in the center of each. This picture is a little washed out. The cardstock is Summer Sun, Real Red, Whisper White and a scrap of designer paper(unknown).
I have been wanting to try using my Crop-A-Dile to do this dry embossing since I heard about it at Convention. When I was making this card I thought it needed something else. Normally I would pull out the mat pack and paper piercing tool and add a row of holes. Then a light bulb went off and I remembered this new technique that everyone is doing!

I like this simple card and I'm going to try and do more like this with different sentiments.

All your cards are beautiful! They look like you've put in a lot of work into them and it show by how great they are.

I've made cards where I spent hours making them and many times, when I spend too much time on them, the results don't meet my expectations. After working so hard, I sort of expect more.
