This card is a compilation of about 4 stamps sets and multiple mess ups! I had the desire to stamp something with lavender...so I started playing with layering a meadow scene. It was working fine until one of the stamps I used had not been cleaned from its last use...and the yellow did not look so nice. I was going to just toss the piece away and chalk it up to practice..then I noticed there was a yellow and purple color challenge out in blog land. I thought I can salvage this piece! I bravely cut the image down and stamped a sentiment on top...which smudged. I decided that I could cover that with a butterfly in flight and make it look intentional. OK, now a little bling...why not add a little more yellow to ensure that I am on target with the challenge. I am not usually a fan of what I consider to be "floating" borders, but I see them all the time so I went for it. I decided to quit at that point because I couldn't place ribbon in any way that I thought added to the card. I was happy to be able to use this image and I logged on to the challenge only to realize that there was a sketch involved also. I get a chuckle from myself when I realize how hard I have worked on something only to realize I completely misunderstood the challenge. That has happened more often that I will admit ;-). Hope you like my blooper meadow card.
