Being Brave

Every so often (not too often though!!) I like to show you a card that I don't particularly like - a "dud", so to speak. Here is one such example:

This is one of those cards that I struggled with. I should probably have taken that as a sign that I needed to let it go. But, never one to give up easily, I persisted...and persisted...and persisted. It looks like such a simple card, but I tried different background colours and patterns, different layouts. Finally, I decided that this was as good as it was going to get, but really, it's just a bit... blech.
But I'm being brave and showing you all anyway. Maybe someone out there will see it, and be inspired... even if they're only inspired to make a better version! LOL

    Thanks for being brave and posting a card that you are not 100% about liking. As a fellow demo, it helps me to know that someone whose style I admire, can struggle too but then just gets on with it. It helps me be more forgiving of my "not quite there" designs until great really hits! Love the stamp set and details, maybe the colors aren't mine, but there IS something there!

  2. Marelle, we all have 'those moments', some of us more than others, so isn't that when we post the 'bleh' to great aunty [insert name] who we don't really like much but insists on a birthday card??? Oops let the cat out of the bag. Helen

  3. Thank you for sharing, but i quite like this card! I'm sure we all have those days (or cards) that just don't come together quite as we hoped! Thank you for 'being brave' and posting something showing that even the most amazing can have an off day!
