My mother always told me "haste makes waste" and she was sooo right. I was trying to hurry up to get loaded and to work and made a complete mess of this but here it is anyway. This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE and Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE - Certainly Pretty Choc. My main image was stamped twice in timber Brown Stazon then colored w/SU markers. The flowers in the pot were cut out and popped up. I applied stickles for some glitter. The panel under that, Certainly Celery pattern paper was SUPPOSED to be the other side. Didn't realize I messed that up until I was loaded. Panel 3 is Pretty in Pink pattern paper with brown ribbon hiding the seam that I had to make because I cut it too short. Card base is Certainly Celery. The pot, OMGosh, was colored originally with creamy caramel and after the 2nd coat I liked it so I stopped but when I put it all together then the pot looked too light. So I was going to add some color bc I can not leave well enough alone like Mama also always said. Hence the pot became one solid choc chip color. YUK!!.

Don't be so hard on yourself--your card is gorgeous! If you don't like the pot, you could stamp it out on dp that would coordinate and paste it over the choc.chip one.

Check out my version of this stamp--I had problems too!

The chocolate chip is so nice against the mat. The dark pot makes the flowers pop Neva!

Why is it such a mess? I don't think so at all! I think your card is beautiful!
