You know when you're making something and it all just comes together right away? And you're left feeling totally satisfied that you made something really cute and you hardly spent any time doing so?
This was NOT one of those times :)
I set out making a card for a friend who was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I wanted something soft and cheery, so I started with a favorite color combo of mine -- celery green, rose, and baby blue. After too many iterations to count, I wound up with something that, although I like it, is no longer my idea of a card suitable for this occasion. (Too much black, you know?)
So back to the craft room to try again. Bummer ;)
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy this "outtake."
