RSCC #15 and CPS #130



So I worked really hard on this card...starting it as a smaller size and then resizing the pieces for 5x7 card...but after all my work, I don't like it! I'm not sure what exactly I don't like...



I used a whole lot of stamps on this card and followed the CPS Sketch #130 as well as Dawn's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15 . And this also qualifies for our Papertrey Princess Challenge given by Lee to use a sketch.

Thanks for stopping by and hope this card won't scare you away in the future!!

You silly thing LOL! This card certainly won't scare me away! I really like it - the flourishes work really well as stems and I think the tag is just adorable!
I think all your hard work was worth it!

I like it! Love the flourish as stems. I feel your pain though, I was working on the same color challenge... put over an hour into the card and in the end didnt like it. I made a new one, hopefully I will get a picture of it tomorrow.

Melissa, I had to click on the card pic to see all the details ups close. SO many things to see! From the textstyle BG to the aging on the edges to the bit of glitter on the tag I was wowed! I'm not sure what it is you don't like, but it's fab to us out here in blogland. No worries at all my dear!
