There Are No Words...

I really have no idea what to title this post. I thought about a lot of things.... "When Good Cards Go Bad" ..... "More is More" .... "Color Combo's No Sane Stamper Would Choose" etc., etc., etc. LOL! This is like the dress that one girl wore for picture day. You were pretty sure you didn't like it, but couldn't stop looking at it, and by the end of the day you wanted one for yourself. hee hee.

Remember how I told you I was a Bellaholics Challenge Queen? Well, one of our other Queen's is in charge of an embellishment challenge, and this week's challenge was to combine ribbon or bows with at least five buttons and a Stamping Bella image. I received this image from my friend Lorie quite awhile ago, so I thought I'd color it and use it for this challenge. I love the coloring job, and the sparkling wings. I can even wrap my mind around the semi-stay-puff clouds. I tried to use the buttons as stars, but they kind of got away from me. I should have stuck with all yellow, rather than trying to incorporate all of the colors in the DP. Then there's the ribbon. Oye. I think it's a cute approach, but on the wrong card. How fun would it be with a Christmasy image in the middle under the ribbon? I can see it in my head, and it looks great. Of course, I could see this one in my head too, so maybe that doesn't say much. LOL.

You know what though? You have to take the good with the bad. Sometimes ideas work out, sometimes they don't. Life goes on, and I'll live to stamp another day!

I know I said I wasn't going to post daily anymore, but I had to make a card yesterday for World Card Making Day, so I thought I'd share it. I might have to post another one tomorrow night just so it isn't the first thing new readers see for two days straight. :o)

Anyhow, I hope I gave you a chuckle for your Sunday morning!

um, I agree with you Sarah on everything. Your coloring is really great on this image. I think it's good that you can look at it though and see where you went wrong! Sometimes I can't even figure that much out!

Kim said...

You always make me smile :-). I can tell someone is perhaps a wee bit of a perfectionist? Hmmmm. The card is cute. You are much too critical of yourself silly.
