The Crooked Card
I got the image (from SU) colored and decided to add some Wink of Stella to the berries. Going along great and then the Wink decided to see how big of a puddle it could make! It went all over the card - and I wasn't even squeezing it. Think it has a life of it's own.
Ok, ditch that and start over. Colored the image, added the Wink again, and stamped the sentiment - CROOKED!
Start over! Go through the entire process again and dang if I still didn't get the sentiment a little crooked! It'll pass though so I'll try not to think about that. Got the patterned paper glued down and added that beautiful burlap paper that has gold thread running through it. After finishing the entire card noticed the burlap looks like it's going downhill! (By now, I'm thinking the entire card has gone downhill!!!) Anyway, I know I cut the burlap straight so what's the deal! Well, duh......the entire paper pack of that burlap is crooked! Hence, we have the crooked card! If you just kinda tilt your head to the right, it looks pretty good!
My first Christmas card for this year though! It's a start even if it's not such a great start!
I'll enter this over at The Rudolph Days Challenge. I kept wanting to enter this challenge last year and never did. Every year I say I'm going to start early on making cards for Christmas - and never do. Maybe this year will be different.
Thanks for stopping by...........
