Well, sometimes the best designed plan for a card does not always turn out like what one had anticipated. While stamping the sentiment on my birthday card using my MISTI I found it needed a re-stamping and I did not realize that the card stock had slipped so I got a shadow affect. But I decided to keep it that way regardless. So here is the boo boo card I made today.
I tried to add a bit of yellow pencil to the shadow so that it sort of tied in with the rest of the color scheme. The layered balloons and the sentiment are all from a stamp set by Gina Marie Designs. And, the die I used to cut out my focal layer left a nice edging and that is also from Gina Marie Designs. The final touch to my card was to add a few rhinestone gems which closely matched the colors.
I am entering this card in the Double D's Blog Challenge which by the way is celebrating their 2-year birthday/anniversary. So of course, they are calling for birthday or anniversary cards. They have a special mood board which will most certainly inspire you. I was inspired by the balloons and this stamp set was a recent purchase so now it has a first outing too. I think it will get lots of use in the future as well.
Well, now I have a sore toe. I got a blister from a shoe and then last night I went and stubbed it again. So I am walking with even more of a limp. It seems there is always something to cramp my style. LOL
