Curtain Call Color Challenge: Act #35
I whipped up this little card yesterday for Stacey's Curtain Call Color Challenge #35, fun colors, right?!
This card is memorial for two reasons:
1) I finally made one of those scrunched up flowers! I think I'm the only person left in paper-crafting land that hasn't attempted one. My friend Val gave me a couple she made, so I tried to copy hers. I scrunched and obsessed, scrunched and obsessed, and finally gave up. She told me last night, however, there's a tutorial on Dawn McVey's blog, so I need to go check that out!
2) After my big-mouth bragging about not using a stamp-a-ma-jig the other day, I went to stamp a greeting on the bottom left corner of this card AND it was crooked AND it looked bad there! Argh! So, I just slipped some patterned paper over my boo boo and voila!...mistake covered up and the card actually looked better with the patterned paper. So, a stamping lesson reminder: happy accident! There's always a solution to a stamping mistake and it often makes a better card in the long run!
Okay, Chatty Cathy has to roll now...still lots more SU convention samples to make, unlike Diana and Cindy, grrrr, who are finished! I really am trying to finish early (somewhat early) to avoid my usual last minute expensive shipping charges, it's just hard for a Last Minute Lulu like myself! Thanks so much for stopping by! Hugs and happy stamping!
