I wasn't feeling very well yesterday. A touch of the bug going around the house and I forced myself to create anyway. This card is living proof that was a unwise choice. tee hee. OMG this thing is terrible. I can't tell you how much I dislike this card and yet the receiver will love it. My G.F. will get this card in a day or two as I sent it out today.
I know you guys are probably thinking then why show it? Well I do believe that this blog is a creative process just like the things I create. To show my bad work as well as the okay is a learning process. The good works will stand out more and by doing what is really painful, teach me what to work towards. Does that make any sense at all? Or are my ramblings understandable to me alone?
I do like the cut outs on the card and the black card stock by Bassill. That is about it. I think maybe the golden colors are just not for me or maybe just this combination. I will pick up this stamp again at some point and try again. It is gonna be awhile as at this moment it is really painful. AHHHHHHHHHH!
