This card started out pretty cute this morning. I colored the baby bella image (thanks for letting me borrow your stamps Jen). I liked how it turned out colorwise but it is a pretty tall stamp and I had a hard time coming up with a layout. I started out with a glittery striped pastel colored background but I couldn't figure out anything to do with it. I tried adding photo corners with brads and I tried adding a cuttlebugged half circle behind the image...nope. Nothing seemed to work. It had started off on such a good note with the adorable image and the coloring but it was on the fast track to my trash bin. I left it alone for a few hours and took the kids out for lunch. When I got back I decided to give it one last chance. I swapped out the striped background and cuttlebugged a shimmery piece of vellum instead. It looked ok but then I got a little crazy and sponged it with blue ink and then added a some glitter to the already shimmery vellum using the essential glue pad (probably didn't need to do this but for me you can never have too much glitter). I couldn't figure out a sentiment to stamp or even where to put it so I decided to use some rub-ons and my tiny star punch. Overall, not a super card but at least it took a detour away from the trash can. It started as a good idea and ended as a so-so card. Hope you are all enjoying your Thursday! We are headed off to the doctor to have them take a look at an infected hang-nail on Beckett's thumb. Wish the kids understood when I say "don't pick at it or it will get infected", that I actually mean it. Oh well...wish us luck!
