I am on SLOW, SLOW dial-up at my Dad's, so I've just uploaded a small picture, and will upload proper picture and full details to my SCS gallery tomorrow or Monday - and hope to find time to get a proper look at the samples, because the details I've seen look so enticing.

For some reason, I am not able to leave a comment for Patter Cross. I did view her card and wanted to leave her a nice comment but couldn't. :(

Loved this challenge -- took me longer to figure out what was cotton than to make the card! Congratulations ODBD!
