Guinness World Record Challenge

Happy Thursday My Blogger Friends!
My share today is all about making a difference and in particular.........the Guinness World Record Card challenge that Stampin' UP! set out to meet last Friday night at Convention.  We were asked to bring a hand-made card to convention and help set the world record of the most cards sent from a single location at one time.  GUESS WHAT FRIENDS.........We Did It!  We recorded a total of 2,984 cards in the three hour timeframe that Guinness World Records set up for us.  Here is the card I brought with me for this challenge......

 I made this special card for my good friend Kris H.
I wanted to send her a special little thank you for helping me with my July Camp order.......and I also wanted to give Kris some bragging rights.  I wanted her to be able to say that she received one of the 2,984 cards that were sent out for the Stampin' UP! Guinness World Record Breaking Card Challenge on July 19, 2013.
 I used the new "Fishin' Around" stamp set for my focal image and ran a piece of Calypso Coral cardstock through the Big Shot using the "Window Frames" framelits collection set.
I used the "I Am Me" DSP stack for my two cross-over panels and backed each of them with a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  I then added a pretty punched edge to the Whisper White cardstock using the Scallop Trim Border Punch.  I also ran my Crisp Cantaloupe base piece through the Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dots Embossing Folder.
I colored in my two fish with my Stampin' Write Markers.........and then used some Crystal Effects to pretty up the fish and some of the bubbles and water. 
We had two requirements for our card to qualify in this Guinness World Record challenge.....and that was our card needed a stamped image on the front of our card......AND a stamped sentiment on the inside.  Here's what I stamped on the inside (along with a special little note to Kris). 
 
It was LOTS of fun being part of this fun World Record Challenge and I'm sure that Stampin' UP! will break it's own record again some day at another Stampin' UP! event.
 
Thanks for joining me today......Hope you can come back tomorrow and join me for some special pictures I took at our Stampin' UP! Awards Night.  Keep Living Your Dream!

Awwwwwww....so adorable. I so love this set and I broke down and bought it but haven't used it yet. I was going to make it as shown in the annual cat but I think I will now use the crystal effects. Your card is so awesome and what a feat eh ! Congrats on being a part of it. Thank you so much for sharing.
