Awash With Flowers Birthday Card

Oh my!!  That is really all I can say about this creation!!!  It wasn't how it looked in my head.  Maybe when this head cold goes away I'll be able to see more clearly what is up there and hopefully it will come out on paper nicer too!!  There is some nasty virus thing going around and 3 weeks ago lucky me caught it.  Now it's settled in my sinus but it is starting to get better and that is what's important!  I don't ever recall having anything this long before.  Even the doctor said this can hang on for up to 4 weeks.  SO that means 6 days to go!!! LOL

Anyway, back to this interesting creation.  I wanted to make a single flower on a card.  I think what went wrong was I didn't tape off the stem.  Using the whole stem caused the flower to be longer.  But I stuck with it and tried to make it work but obviously it didn't. 

I may stamp another flower top and cut it out and set it in place with Dimensionals.  It will give the card a bit more depth.  It sure could use something. 

I did enjoy playing with the Lattice embossing folder.  It's always fun when I can do that.  I just LOVE the look it creates and the feel is so cool too!

Anyway, This is what I ended up with and I am sharing it with you anyway.  Off to try something better for tomorrow! Hope the head clears up so the card image I have in my head comes out better on paper!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,

I would be very pleased, with this card, if I had made it. I think that it is very lovely, the flower and the colors. Don't be so hard on yourself!

I hope that you get well soon, DH and I had the same thing - I think that DH's took over a month and mine a little less than a month. It was not fun.
