Bright Birthday

This card fought me the entire night! Looks simple right? Well, it should have been! I found the DP which was from SU. I liked it with the new Turquoise Sea CS from GinaK and some Chocolate Kiss. The challenge I was creating this card for was for StampTV Friday challenge which was to ink a Cuttlebug folder so I used one of the border ones with a tad bit too much brown ink! Then I had it all laid out, flowers colored, centered nicely and then I got some ink on the upper corner - AGHHH! Okay - move the flowers to the upper corner. Now the tags with the sentiment did not fit right - GRRRR - okay - go down to only one tag, cut the white part out of the one and glued it on the brown. But.... the clock was ticking and I wanted this challenge in! There is a possibility of winning a stamp set if my card is randomly chosen. I HAD to get this in on time! My cutting wasn't the best (in a hurry) so I cut one side a little off. &^$%# - okay - quick - stamp two more flowers, color them, cut them out (carefully!) and covered up that boo-boo. Grab the camera - take the picture - add the watermark ...but wait... what is that I see? YIPES - I have an ink spot in the middle of the DP! Forgive me for the less than perfect card upload but the card is as it is! Call it a scratch and dent card! Sure hope I get a free stamp set out of this! Thanks for putting up with me. Here is the card.

Miesje, that was a great story! SO, funny! Of course, all of us stampers can relate! And honestly, I had to look again to find the ink stain in the middle of the dp! I think it turned out great despite all the trouble it caused you! :)

Haven't we all had card that behave that way!! I don't think anyone would have known "all the troubles you've seen" if you hadn't told us! I love the flowers in the vase!

That's too funny! I also did not see your ink stain until I read your post. All in all, it turned out beautifully!

Bless your heart, never fails when we want it to go fast and perfect, some thing messes up, but it's gorgeous, I did enjoy reading your story.
