What Is It.....

What is it about being your own worst critic? I mean really! Shouldn't you be your own best cheerleader?! I have been putting cards together and think "that's not too bad" then, I start mentally picking it apart! Know what I mean?! Seriously, here I was just having a good ole time coloring away at this image and was thinking ahead to what all I was going to do with it and, in my mind, it turned out cute! Then, on paper...literally, it didn't turn out quite the same! LOL! Were I to do this again I think I'd ink up that yellow background and maybe break out some more of my bling I've been harboring like the rhinestone depression was coming! LOL! Well, here is the card I'm talking about!



I couldn't resist the balloons - look closely at their shape! The words - too cute! All from "River City Rubberworks"! They have the FUNNIEST stamps ever! LOL! I got the DP from JoAnn Fabric's open bin, the cardstock is from SU, the pink brads are from Making Memories, I used my tag punch from SU, I free hand cut the blue behind that white tag shape, my oval cutting tools (<--0500 mental mind block and can't remember what it's called UGH!) and I colored it with my Koh-I-Nor pencils! I think that's it!
I guess I opened the door for suggestions of how to "buck it up a notch" so, let me know what you think! I'm game since I'm always looking for ways to improve!!

Thanks for looking!

Until next time....

I think your card came out great. Love those balloons.

I know what you mean about picking cards apart. I'm the same way and to be honest there are only a few cards that I post on my blog that I truly like. The others, well need work.

I think your card looks great.

I do know what you mean - you start to overthink things and then you start questioning the colors and the layout. Usually if I leave it for a day or two and come back to it I'll realize that it's pretty cute.
