Grrrr...I am trying to get back into the groove of stamping more often, but it's frustrating how long it takes me to come up with a card, and then when it doesn't turn out where I like iti...grrrr

Well, this was one of those cards. I wanted it really simple...almost all white...but it didn't look right, so I added some brown around the edges, then a little more here and there, then by the time the whole thing was put together...I took it apart and added the background canvas stamp-that helped a lot...but it covered up the top left sentiment where it is hard to read now(The rope is hiding it in this pic too; It says "What happens if you forget")...I give least on this one for now...I'll have to start it all over sometime...

I just thought I would post it anyway-sometimes it's nice to know that not everyone comes up with winners all the time and that we all get frustrated. I know that the more often I stamp, the faster and more easy the cards's just findng the time an energy these days.

Anyway, thanks for listening to me ramble. I still like the stamp and the idea of this card. You can't see it, but I even put sparkles on her ballet shoes and ribbons in her pigtails and it adds to it. Here is a pic of how it opens up-fun to do a little different...can you believe it even started out as a square card??? Apparently I was going for a look that a little girl had carried this around for years, draggin it through the mud with her in her adventures. haha Maybe it's not horrible (except for the "hidden"sentiment at the top npw) but it's not the way I wanted it to turn out.
