This week's challenge is anything goes at All That Scraps.   But please do remember, your project must include an image by CC Designs (including Amy R, Mashi's Muffins, Sweet November, Lil Lads & Lolitas, and Webbie's Words) that can be found at All That Scraps Store.

I worked what seemed like forever on this card.  After a few hours I threw it in the garbage and went to bed and tried not to get too discouraged.  Yesterday morning before work I decided that it could be saved and mended it back to health and put the finishing touches on it last night.  Sheesh - what a card!

I paper pieced Maribelle's dress, glittered her and gave her some fun pink hair:

Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs stamp, Craftsmart Black ink, Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils, Martha Stewart Turquoise, Yellow Barite, and Tourmaline glitters, Recollections gems.  Tools:  mineral spirits and blending stumps, sewing machine, EK Success Corner punch.

I made this card for the following challenges:  LEJ Designs - wings,Tuesday Throwdown - paper piecing, Corrosive Challenge - glitter, Cards in Envy - sketch:

Well that's it for me for another day - thanks for stopping by!  Cheers!
