7 Kids Challenge - #13 Try a New Technique

It's Wednesday and time for another 7 Kids College Fund Challenge!

This weeks challenge is to try a new technique. Barb Hardeman recently posted a Never Ending Card, and I was so intrigued, I just had to try it out. Here is my Never Ending Card.

 You can find the following items at 7 Kids College Fund

Accessories:  Flowers, Stickles, Flower Soft

And this shows how the card starts. 


I checked YouTube for a tutorial and there are a few available. I used this tutorial.  It is pretty simple. The hardest part is figuring out how to decorate the panels. I have shown this to a few people, and they absolutely love this technique. It is like a toy that they can't stop playing with.

So, what technique have you been itching to try? Try it this week and enter the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge. 

Have a great day!

Helo Julie, OH! This is MAGNIFIQUE. I love everything about this card. So inspiring!
I had seen the technique, but did not think the world of it. But what you did is amazing. Each little scene with a proper sentiment is lovely. Gorgeous work.
Hugs. Danielle.

Julie! Julie! Julie!!! This is fabulous! Oh what a darling card and what a super job you did with the Mini Maggies and the accessories. I love the theme of your card. I'm so happy you gave it a try. They are so easy and so much fun to do, but you're right, the hardest part is the decision on how to decorate. Not that it's HARD, it just the decisions....LOL
You did a beautiful job and I'm honored that I inspired you!
Hugs,
BARB

Gorgeous neverending card! I love that technique too but only made two of them. They definitely require some extra work. Lovely finishing on every single little spot.
Great work,
