This is What Happens When You Are Tired!!

I wanted SO badly to play with the Stampin' Up! "Branched Out" set. It was late, which is nothing new to me. SO I decided I would play with this set. As I was getting out my inks and papers I started to run out of steam. But I decided I would still play with the set. The card I wanted to make was pretty simple so I didn't think it would take long.

Well, I finished my card and when I saw it the next day I just laughed. The grass under the tree stands out like a sore thumb as well as the purple butterflies and the crooked tire swing. Now trust me here, last night it looked pretty good to me!!! And no, I wasn't drinking!!! LOL

SO I thought I'd give it another try. I dumped the Chocolate Chip layer, went with vanilla card stock, kept the butterflies the same color as the card. I added a birdhouse instead of the tire. I like this one much better. Even hours after I made it and looked at it again!!! Though I think it could use something in the upper right corner. But for now I just compare it to the other one I made and even with nothing in that corner it looks good!!! LOL Lesson learned here is to NOT stamp when you are tired. Though it was good for a laugh and for those who know me know I LOVE to laugh!!!

Thank you for visiting today and I hope you are enjoying your day!

I liked the chocolate chip layer it framed the card design nicely, seperating the inked edge and card base.

They're both cute! LOL I think the tire looks like it's swinging in the wind! I'm glad you played though...sometimes you just GOTTA do that!! :)

lol! I actually liked the first one best! I like the crooked tire, as it adds movement, cos it looks like it is swinging.
Great stamp set too.
