That's a beautiful card. I love the texture of the background, and the 3D flowers.

Before I get to mine, I have to say that everyone's cards are just getting more and more awesome- I love them all, but today my fave was have2craft's card. So shhhhparkly!  Grin

Oookay. This card is far and away one of the most bizarre things I have ever made. It was one of those things where you just keep adding and adding, and i'm still not sure if it's done:

This card has sort of a story, if you care to know it. The plantation house on the card was called 3 Oaks. It once stood in the place where the parking lot of the Domino Sugar refinery (New Orleans) now stands. (The lot is actually a FEMA trailer park since Katrina, housing the employees who have still not rebuilt.) My husband works at this refinery, and gets sick of me asking questions about it, as if he knows.  Cheesy Ever since I heard about this, i've been obsessed with it, finding pictures and documents about it. It was demolished by the refinery in 1960, under somewhat secretive circumstances. Should never have happened. It was one of the oldest plantation houses in LA, once even housing Napoleon's troops. It has an irony about it: 3 Oaks was the hub of an extremely successful sugar plantation, it sat right on the Mississippi river. The whole area was founded on sugar. That's why the refinery was built there in 1905 in the first place. So sugar built the building, and sugar destroyed it.

From what I can gather, the lady on the card once lived there during the civil war. I have a tendency to develop unhealthy obsessions with buildings. The curlicues on the bottom are sort of a stylized wroght iron fence I drew. The more uniform looking swirleys are stamps from Tuscan Rose. The rest of it, who the hell knows what I was thinking.

FerretNose, that card is visually amazing, much less without all the cool history with it.  I would try to rip it from your hands (in exchange for one of mine, of course) if I didn't just recently get a lovely card from you.  It is EXCELLENT, I am going to watch for more cards of yours!
