Swinging Birgitta:

Good morning all!  Wednesday again = wahoooooo, just a few more days until August Long Weekend!!

AND...  I can finally share my secret:  I have been chosen to join the All That Scraps Challenge design team.  Ask me how excited I am.  VERY excited!!

Have you ever made a card and then decided that you dislike it very much?  If not, please tell me your secret ;)

I decided to try a new technique (masking) and it went so well, I was very pleased with how the card was coming along.  Then I did the unthinkable - with a whole slop of glue, I added something that looked terrible and decided it was sink or swim time and ripped it off.  Then I was left with a big ol' gaping hole on my adorable little card - hence the reason there are oddly placed fences around my image.

Would you have noticed if I wouldn't have said anything LOL???

Card Ingredients:  C.C. Designs digistamps, Craft Smart Breeze chalk ink, Simple Stories Summer Fresh papers, DCWV and Recollections cardstock, Prismacolor pencils (skin - Light Peach, Peach, Burnt Ochre, Blush Pink, Crimson Red;  Hair - 30%, 50%, 90% Cool Grey, Black; Tree/Swing - Chocolate, Dark Brown, Dark Umbre), Gelly Roll white pen, Copic Black liner pen.  Tools:  C.C.

I made this card for the following challenges:  Paper Makeup - summer, Crazy 4 Challenges - hot summer nights, Card Makin' Mamas - 1 image, 2 papers, 3 embellishments, Wags 'n Whiskers - new technique (masking), Anything Goes - not a square.

Have a wonderful Wednesday and thanks for the visit!

You card is adorable and no, I don't think anyone would have noticed if you hadn't mentioned it. So glad you joined us for the endless summer challenge at Paper Makeup Stamps' Digi Makeover Challenge this week.

really great card, very sweet

Annette said...

How silly of you to think that your "mistake" made your card less than great. The cover up fence panels look fine, and the cute little flutterflies on them are perfect. Love the image too, very sweet. Beautiful Deanne, love all of it.

There are no mistakes in crafting , just creative opportunities. At least that is what I tell my classes.( I honestly believe that) with that said , I think your card is sweet. Thanks for sharing at Card Makin' Mamas.
