Birthday Wishes/ CR84FN 46

Hello my sweet blog friends.  I have a card to share with you that I have made for CR84FN.  My BFF's birthday is on Friday and I wanted to make something special for her.  I love this weeks new colors of Pink, Yellow, and a Neutral, but I am not so sure I like the outcome of my card.  What I had in my mind and what came out on paper just didn't match.  I think we are our own worst critic sometimes.  


I love the papers I used and all the elements, I just don't like the layout of the card.  I am thinking if I had turned it vertically it would have been better off.  What do you think?  I love butterflies, so I had to add one to the card.  I go through phases of using them...I think it is that time again.  :)



Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI Rustic White, Kraft
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye
Stamps: PTI Mat Stack 4
Ink: Memento/Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz/Spun Sugar
Dies: PTI Mat Stack 4, Butterfly, Love Lives Here (butterfly), MFT Mini Tab die set


Don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team.  They have some major eye candy for you.

Very beautiful! Love the half die for the sentiment. Clever. I always second guess my designs. :) My best designs are usually when I have dropped my card mid-stream and it falls into another design that is way better than the one I laid out. :)

Linda R. said...

That flower looks so pretty. I think the design of your card looks great the way that it is...

Hugs, Linda

Makie, that was a flower I got from Michael's last year. It is Recollections which is their brand..a knock off of Prima flowers. I pulled the crochet flower center off and added a button with twine. I love it much better that way. :)

Cyndie said...

Well, I think it is gorgeous! The flower is awesome and so is the butterfly, and I love how you did the sentiment!

Shannon White said...
