Pion Design Fairytale of Spring

Hello my crafty friends get ready for a super lonnnnnnnng post,
    Today I am sharing a card made from inspiration found on the internet .  My CM-BFF Lesia of Memas Crafts knows my card making so well, that she sent me the same card to try.  I have no idea who made the card.  I cannot find the originator.  I got the picture from G.I. and I think Lesia may have gotten it from Pinterest.  So, let me say that for sure I am NOT the originator.  There is no tutorial on how to make this card (at least not that I could find on You Tube), I made the card simply from sight and imagination.  My measurement are my own.  I will try to include a picture of the original card in case anyone wants to give it a go.  This was another one of those challenging cards because of all the funky cuts.  Fractions are pretty easy for card making, it's between a whole and 1/32nd of inch.  However, it was really NOT my plan to revisit Geometry and the Pythagorean Theorem !!!  It's a beautiful card but very time intensive.  I work full-time, so it took me all week to complete the card ( I think I started on Sunday).  I didn't use a whole lot to make the card because this was only a demo.  Well mon amis- this is the demo, the real card,  and probably the last time I will do this card (unless a wild hair revisits my mind again).  The hardest part about this card is...wait for it...HAVING NO DARN DIRECTIONS!!!!  No, seriously and truly the hardest part was doing the matting.  I had strips of patterned paper all over my workstation and the floor, just trying to get close to a decent mat.  I finally gave up and accepted what it was!    This is a money maker if you have a few things like... the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit,  the Disciples (you will need all 12), the wisdom of David, the forces of King Solomon, and the patience of Job!  Thanks for stopping by
