My Ugly Card

I found this cool blog called Crap I've Made. She is really funny and has made some really neat stuff. Today's card is definitely not one of my better ones. I must have taken the front off, cursed at it, and thrown it in the trash like four times. I'm still not happy with it. It's not what I had envisioned in my head. So, here is the crap I made:

Paper: Papertrey Ink, The Paper Company, Bazzill
Misc: Beautiful Blooms die, half pearls, ribbon, doily, pop up dots

The flowers were cut using the Papertrey Ink Beautiful Blooms die. They are such pretty dies, and I ruined them by making these flowers! I added too much ribbon, too many pearls and the doily looks grey against the black polka dotted background.

Oh, well, hopefully my Mom will look at it and say it's just beautiful and it's the prettiest card she has ever seen. Thank goodness for Moms.

Thanks for stopping by,



  1. I like the flowers so I don't think it's crappy. LOL

  2. This is a very lovely card. I really like the classic, clean look of red, white and black and the green adds some interest to it. I really like it.

  3. I say put the card away for another day, and then bring it back out and you will see what I see... a very beautiful card. Glad it didn't make the trash can! Tks for sharing it with me!

  4. Yes, your Mom thinks it the most beautiful card I have ever seen and I am not even a bit bias LOL.

  5. I also like your card, really LMBO about "the crap I made." I feel that way most days so I am going to hop on over and check out her blog! LOL
