Nothing Special

I made this card yesterday and probably wouldn't have posted it had I had enough energy to make one tonight. As for not being crazy about the card, I think I should have brought one more color into the mix. One element that I do like is the flower stamped around the O on the word "of." I do love this stamp set though, regardless of whether every card I make with it is one I'm wild about.

Materials & Tools: Colonial White, Sunflower, and Cocoa cardstock; Sunflower, Cocoa, and Bamboo ink pads; Rustic Flowers stamp set; Cocoa ribbon; Stampin' Up Horizontal Slot punch; 3M foam mounting tape; Sanding block.

As I alluded to at the beginning of this post, I'm a little zapped tonight, and what energy I had at the end of the workday, I used to entertain Bjorn and Mathias who are here tonight and are currently giving Grandpa a hard time about going to bed. With that, I suppose I should go try to help him out. I'll be back tomorrow night with a little something. In the meanwhile, take care and have a great day tomorrow.

Hey, I like card as is! We have been out of town visiting a cousin who is returning to Phoenix for the winter. I need to get some stamping done today plus get all our stuff put away from our little trip. I like all the cards you have made over the weekend.

Hey, don't be so hard on yourself, this card is beautiful! Some people would give their right arm for half your talent! Keep up the great work and I hope things get less stressful soon...

I think someone is being a bit hard on herself, but I completely understand where you are coming from!! I do like the card as is. What other color do you think it needs? An orange maybe? hmmmmm... I like that stamp set too and haven't used it enough. Thanks for the inkspiration!
