card topic= the story of the incredible card journey

Today's post is about an amazing journey for a card created by 5 crafters from 4 spread apart U.S. states and 1 western Canadian province! What unifies them is their participation in the message board activities at Paper Wishes website.

Here's the card's beginning chapter and creation with me in IL, the starter:
I used a PW purchased basic white card form for the base; added PW/HOTP heart patterned paper to front and then used PW purchased Pebbles stencil to create scalloped edging and also reduced the right margin; inked the edges with yellow-orange stamp pad; to the inside I applied the PW/HOTP plaid patterned paper;

Chapter 2: card was sent to West Virginia and Pat added the PW/HOTP silver dazzle dragonflies and small flower;

Chapter 3: card was sent to British Columbia and Rhonda added the HOTP girlfriend definition that she cut into heart shape and inked the edges of it; she also added the PW/HOTP dragonfly brad;

Chapter 4: card was sent to Kentucky and Connie added some more of the PW/HOTP heart patterned paper that she cut into a rectangle; she added the sentiment text box that she had chalked;

Chapter 5: card was sent to Florida and Jennifer added the PW/HOTP peachy-pink grosgrain ribbon bow;

and Chapter 6: card was sent to Illinois, back to me, so that I could have a finished card and also be responsible to post photos on the discussion thread in the mb forum. Viola'!!!! Our finished card story:
