Shopping

Sunday, January 13, 2013

You know how you make a card sometimes and you think if you just add one more thing it'll be perfect but you still don't like it?  Well that's what happened with this one.  I spent waaaayyyy too much time on it, and some days you just have to throw in the towel, push it aside, and stop.  I'm not sure what is bugging me about it, but it's not a favorite.  Anyhoo...I used the Retro Sketch #46 and I'm joining the challenge over at Color My Heart-Color Dare #25!  

Stamps, Sentiment, Cardstock and Papers are all CTMH.
Other Stuff - Ribbon, button, crochet thread and rhinestones.

I think your card is great! Who knew superhero paper could work for a fashionista... Love your button/ribbon treatment, and the gem-stone/cobblestone street anchors the little lady just perfectly. Thanks for joining the crew at Color My Heart this week!

Your card is great! Who knew that Superhero paper could work for a fashionista? Love your button/ribbon treatment, and the gem-stone "street" anchors the shopper perfectly! Thanks for joining the crew at Color My Heart this week!

PS I know what you meant about things not looking just how you want. Sometimes you just have to move on. :)

I wonder if it's the light blue bottom border. Would it be better in white??? Hmmm. Still, I love the Superhero Fashonista! Thanks for joining us at Color My Heart. We hope to see you back often!

Thank you for saying what I feel sometimes--that no matter what, you just don't feel your creation is right. However, I disagree, lol! I really like the card, especially how she jumps right off the page. NEVER would have thought to pair up that paper with the Fashionista stamps! It totally works though! Thanks for joining in the Color Dare. :)
