Well, not happy with this one...

Ok, so I have been trying to use more dp, and I wanted to play in the FS challenge on SCS from Sunday and the FS was Merci Kerin aka mkstampin74, who does wonderful use of dp and paper piercing I think...sooo this is her card that I chose to do:

Pretty card by Mercy!

And here is my Ugly card by Cat, lol:



Ug, my coloring was off that day, I think it was the humidity, lol! Yep, blaming that! Maybe its the image that doesnt go 'with' it or something, but this card I do not like. Well, there is ONE thing I like about it, the paper piercing, I got it pretty well even! LOL!

Tonight is the release party for Gina K!! yay! I will be there posting some examples of the new sets I have done, and I DO like those I have made! I am also hosting a fun challenge too!! So be sure and stop by between 7-10pm and chat with us on this thread:

Party Thread!

Lots of good chat and more examples and peeks from the DT and me and Lee too! 3 challenges and usually a couple of contest questions all with chances to win a free stamp set!! Hope to see you there tonight!

Hope you are having a wonderfully creative week!

Cat, not sure why you don't like your card. I love those colours they are much more subtle than Merci's card.
I really like the piercing around both blocks too.
Perhaps its the ribbon - would a softer ribbon change things? (Am I allowed to say that - sorry, not sure about these things!) I like your card anyway and it will make someone very happy!! Have fun tonight - I think its the middle of our Friday for me will try to get there. Sue W

Cat, you silly girl - this card is amazingly beautiful! It is a most relaxing layout, colors are relaxing, ribbon is soft and relaxing.... you SO kicked butt on this! Put your right hand on your left shoulder, and your left hand on your right shoulder and squeeze! There....you have a great big HUG from me!!! Job well done!

Oh Cat I love those colors! Very nice card. Seems we are too often our own worst critics. I think it's a great card. ~chris
