Do you ever do something, think hey that is cute then you take the picture and go…hmmm…well? ugh! That is what I did with this card, I loved stamping the dot to dot stamp with craft white on the red satin ribbon to give it polka dots, but when I took the pictures I realized it was too many dots and I should have used plain ribbon.
I was going to re-do it, but I thought today's lesson would be "know when to say enough" and "when less is more".
Then the dang camera was being a pooper, and my colors were getting all washed out no matter where I put the lamp, so I finally had to lay it down. I got this layout from a magazine, and just made it with Stampin' Up! products. They did not use polka dotted ribbon, they used stitched ribbon instead with a button. Another lesson is "no when not to tweak"…ha! 3 lessons in one today.
This is what I used:
Stamp Set: Dot to Dot, Baroque Motif, Friends 24-7
Paper: Crumb Cake, Poppy Parade, Real Red
Ink: White Craft, Jetblack Stazon, Poppy Parade
Misc: Scallop border punch, Red Satin ribbon
Well it's late and my OCD is screaming "change the ribbon!, change the ribbon!", so I will do that before I head to bed…I think I am gonna use white.
Have an awesome Tuesday and thanks so much for stopping in!
