I just want to cringe when I look at this card. I had an idea in my head, which I liked, but took a bad turn somewhere in the middle of creating. I wanted to show you because I really like it when I can recognize a mistake and learn something from it. I have learned this principle a few times but this time is stared me in the face.....lesson I learned.........
Less Is More!!! I had so many things going on in the first card my eye didn't know what to look at! My color inspiration came from the new figgy pudding basic grey dp, so I felt I needed to use it, hence the ugly have circles at the sides.....and I don't know WHAT possessed me to put a ribbon through the middle of it!
Oh well, not to dwell on the negative, I LOVE my second try of this. I came back a couple hours later and created what my mind's eye had originally intended. The house of mouse character is Mudpie, I wanted to make a Christmas card so I stamped the SU tree behind him and used the Papertrey sentiment to top it off. The stitching is definitely tricky around the corners, so I just had to take my time. Colored with copics and embellished with three drops of liquid pearls.
Thanks for indulging me in my little "ah ha" moment!
