Crazy 4 Challenges - C4C50

Happy Saturday, Friends!! Ooh, it's Crazy 4 Challenges time again! I love the challenges at C4C because well, I actually get challenged! LOL! Frances came up with a fun challenge. . .it's all about music this week. . .and maybe even a little bit of Elvis! Yup, you heard . . .Elvis. Well not really but if you add something Elvis well, you get extra love!

Gosh, I don't remember the last time I created a music themed card. I had to do a bit of brain storming. Because of my craft room re-organization, I remembered I had a music related embellishment that I came across as I was organizing. I think it was fate! I used my Jolee's Boutique scrapbook embellishment. . .I thought it was perfect for this challenge!


I'm sure you think I'm a very determined lady to crochet the medallion just for a card. Well, not really. I'm in the middle of crocheting a table runner and well, the medallion on my card is one that I messed up. Instead of creating 12 petals, I went nuts and created 13. It happens when you're not paying attention. Rather than taking it apart and starting over, I decided to keep it for my card making projects. I actually have another one that I messed up. . .I created 11 petals on the other one. LOL!

Okay. . .be sure to stop by Crazy 4 Challenges and check out the awesome cards the design team created or stop by the designers' individual blogs.

Lovely card!!!! The doily reminds me off some mexican households that I used to visit with my nana when I was a kid they had them everywhere you could place your elbows and your tea cups or fruit juice for the kids. I even remember one of them ladies wanting to teach me how to crochet. I did try to run but nana was faster lol!
