Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!

Have you ever made a card that was SO blah that when you looked at it you couldn't really see the background? If you don't know what I mean, just take a look at this card. Not a long look, it's not necessary. You'll immediately see the blahness (is a real word!!!).

I was playing around with Wednesday's Sketch Challenge at SplitCoastStampers. I had already made a card that I was happy with, click here to see it. I just couldn't leave well enough alone so I had to play some more.

I used a couple of strips of decorative paper fro the Razzleberry Lemonade package. I taped them in place on top of some Rich Razzleberry card stock. I was happy with the way the two papers went together. Of course they should, they were designed to!!! LOL

Then I didn't stick with the size of the of the center piece in the card sketch. If you had clicked on the link above to see my card from Wednesday you'll also see the sketch for the day too. See how much smaller the piece is in the sketch? I wanted SO bad to use the stamp from the "Thoughts & Prayers" set. Well, I used it and it just didn't work.

Oh and throwing in some words didn't help make it any better!!! Lesson learned here: It's best to follow the sketch the way it's presented give or take no more than a half an inch!!!

I will give this one another try keeping the two background pieces and making the top piece just a bit smaller and I'll see if I can't come up with something better. Something that isn't so blah!!!

Thank you for visiting today, please come back and see a much more improved card!!
Have a great day,

I think the card is very pretty.

That is one of my favorite stamps, by the way.

Why is it that we are most critical of our own creations? I love your card and I don't think it's 'blah' at all! Keep up the good work!
