Oh My!

That was all I could say when I was working on this card and when I finished it. I struggled with this card. As most of you know, I am a "layers" person. I LOVE cards with LOTS of layers. This one didn't fit that bill. and as I worked on it all I kept saying is "Oh my." Nothing on it was turning out the way I wanted it to and the more I did to it the uglier it got. But I decided to post my ugly card on here anyway so you all could see that not all of my cards are beautiful or perfect!!! I like you struggle with designs and layouts too.

And seriously, I am almost ashamed to show you all this card!!! It's just awful!! My intent here was to make a simple card. Not a simply ugly card! I don't have much to say about it either!!! LOL

I did use the Stampin' Up! "Delightful Decorations" set and the punch that goes with it. I stamped the image on white card stock and used white embossing powder. After punching it out I sponged the bulb with Real Red ink.

The background on the Old Olive card stock is done using VersaMark and the "Sparkle and Shine" jumbo wheel.

The paper is from the "Merry Moments" package. I have used up almost all of my first pack and a few from the second pack. Why is there always one design in a package that you think is the absolute best and you use it up, wishing the whole time that the whole package was full of that design only??? Like I've said lately, I have quit hoarding my decorative papers and in using them I sometimes wish I had hoarded a piece of it!!! It's a tough addiction to totally overcome but I am on the road to recovery!!! LOL

I do thank you for stopping by and having a look at this card. You are permitted to say "Oh My" too!!! LOL
Thank you SO much for visiting today,

we are our own worst critics...would you feel better by adding a little ribbon to cover the seam between your dsp and the white border. That might just make a happy marriage between those 2!
Love your blog..I visit everyday...thanks for sharing...

Oh Wanda......I LOVE your "ugly" card! You posted a delightfully FUN holiday card. Love the little touch of bling in the ornament and have to say that I've been looking at the ornament SU wheel and think I might have to get that before it retires.

I say your post today is a HIT and multi layers or not.....I give it a "Oh My.....Great Card Creation" vote. Thanks for sharing! Kadie from Arizona
