Need Some Serious Mojo...

It's been over a week since I created anything new.  Yes, I have had cards & videos on my blog, but that is because I had made them earlier in preparation for a busy week.  :)   After work tonight I went to my craft room to finish the card I started over a week ago.  Ugh.  I struggled.



I'm not sure if it is because I tried to create my own color combo using yellow (So Saffron).  Yellow is always a bit tricky for me.  It could have been because I was using florals.  For some reason I don't do well with florals.  Perhaps it is because I took a break from crafting.  It might have something to do with being surrounded by adolescent boys for the past 7 days.  Who knows?  Anyway, here is the final result.


I do like the jewelry tag detail.  :)

This picture shows the dimension I added to the card.  What do you think?  Is it too ugly to send to someone?

This is so far from ugly, I'm concerned about you! :) I love the colors and the folding around the petals looks so realistic-VERY PRETTY card!!

I think it is a beautiful card! The colors are perfect and the little tags are so cute!

Heather, this is a GREAT card! I love that you added dimension to the card by cutting the flowers out and attaching them to the background. And I like the pink and yellow color scheme.

Oh, girl, you are silly (and I mean that in the nicest way). This card is absolutely gorgeous! I love the color combination, the little tags, the flowers. I truly think this is a beautiful card! I "need" that stamp set. I am sure you don't get to make many girly cards with having two boys, but I think you did a wonderful job on this one! TFS!

Heather, this is really pretty! I had convinced myself that I didn't need Everything Eleanor, but I may have to reconsider after seeing this!

You guys really like this card? Are you sure you're not just being nice? :) It does look better in the picture than IRL. I asked my husband if it was ugly and he said "yes". LOL. I think the card has potential. I really like the Everything Eleanor stamp set, and I think that background swirl is so pretty with the flowers on it. I like the ribbon strip. For some reason though... It's not the worst card I've ever made, but... in person I am afraid it is still lacking.

I so do NOT think this card is ugly-far from it Heather! It is a lovely card, the colors, the popping of flowers and the jewelry tag punches. You are too hard on yourself, though we are all our own worst critics. :)
