Sometimes I should just cut my losses and stop. You know, when you start with what seemed like a good idea at the time, then it goes from bad to worse to JUST THROW IT OUT, but you can't, so you keep going? That would be this card:
Then I spied that negative pom-pom-looking thing in my UFO pile, so I decided I'd contrast the green and white with black. Again, you neat people are really missing out on all this inspiration. Seriously.
I rescued a scrap of SU Night & Day and put the pom-pom scrap at the bottom and another strip of black at the top.
I was actually using this sketch from Skipping Stones Design:
Here you can see where I added ... wait for it ... a strip of washi tape:
That left me with the sentiment. Stamping across strips of embossed card stock isn't a lot of fun, so I went looking for a black rub-on or sticker. Oh, yes, I haz some. Most of my SU rub-ons are brown, so I used a sticker from Class A Peel instead:
Next, I'll work on my Jingle Belles card for this fortnight, unless I get distracted. :)
Thanks for stopping by!
