Clean & Simple 155 (Not)

I need to give it up. Not stamping (no no no), but the C&S sketches. WHY WHY WHY am I incapable of keeping things C & S?

Here's a perfectly good sketch from the Clean & Simple blog:

and look what I did with it:

I blame my addiction to Basic Grey papers. This card started with the sketch and a pack of sparkly bird stick-ons that I got from Impress. (Impress is evil and enabling.) I thought I'd flip the sketch and use the horizontal element as a perch, so I did. And I stamped the sentiment (A Muse) where is was supposed to be. Then things went South.

The left side of that black strip looked nekkid, so I die-cut two sets of flowers with one of my SU Sizzlits and attached them with a yellow brad. Then I realized I'd forgotten the three circle elements in the sketch, so forgetting that I'd flipped it, I added more flowers - one with a button and two with liquid pearls in the centers.

Not even close. Oh, I like it just fine, but I can't link this to their blog. Geez.

I'm off to stamp some more. Thanks for stopping by!
