Ok, I am hesitant to even post this. It is bad! Very, very bad!!! Talk about a card needing a "little" something. WOW! This card could certainly use that! Papertrey Ink is taking submissions for a card that didn't really turn out quite right and could use a little something to make it better. I knew immediately the card I had that fit the bill. I always loved the idea of this card, but for some reason it turned out terrible.
Introducing . . . my flop of a card . . . an idea gone completely wrong . . .
Where do I even begin . . . ouch. I was using a color scheme by Betsy Veldman (who happens to be my personal stamping guru. Just ask her. She'll tell you all about our friendship. Ok, maybe don't ask her. I am a fan (cough * stalker) from afar.) The idea was there . . . I'm just not sure you can see it from the ugliness. :) First, the photo is horrific. The lighting is all bad. The colors are WAY off. Second, this card is completely out of balance. Talk about color blocking gone VERY bad. I can think of like 10 things right now that would help this card.
What is so interesting is that I have saved this card. I still have it sitting on my desk. I don't know what it is about it. I guess in my heart, I kept thinking that there was something here . . . that could be great. Ok, that's it. I am going to re-do this one too. It is highly unlikely that my card will get selected, so I must come to the honor of my stamping life. I will most likely not get to it until Saturday (or later if I get caught up in all the Stamp-a-Faire activities).
Prepare your heart and soul blog readers. I am going to be posting up a storm on Saturday. I hope. It is my intention to participate in all of the challenges. I mean, after all, I do have some badges to earn.
