TSSC165 & LNS Challenge Easter/Spring

Stampers, have you ever made a card that just didn't seem right? You played with the elements but you just couldn't get it the way you wanted it? That is this card.

One time my friend Rich, a musician, was asked if he liked all of the songs he had written. His answer was, "Yes. Why would I write a song I didn't like?"

Now I know. Because you have played and played and you still don't like it. It's better than it was but still something is not quite right. Maybe the pink section is too tall. Maybe there are too many flowers. Maybe there are not enough flowers. I don't know.

I resisted the urge to recycle this card. Maybe you will like it. It's not the sketch from Mary Jo's Monday Lunchtime Sketch Challenge. The sketch is good. It's not the theme. LateNightStampers Challenge this week is for Spring and Easter projects. That's a great theme. It's just this card.

So, I'm putting it on my blog and going to bed. We all have cards we love and others that still need help. Although I'm giving up for tonight, I have a feeling I'll be coming back to this card to do it justice. It's got potential it's just not there yet.

Sort of like me. I'm not perfect yet either. But I have someone who is still working with me too. His idea for me is already perfect. Sometimes it hurts when my layers are torn apart. Sometimes I wince when I know a little more is going to be trimmed off and shaped. Sometimes it hurts when I get rearranged again. But each time, I get a little bit closer to my Master's vision. His perfect vision.

I'm starting to like this card more and more. We have a lot in common. Don't give up on us. We'll get there. :)

I used the following Stampin' Up supplies to make this card in progress:

Printed Petals, Just Believe, and Sanded Stamp Sets
Blushing Bride and Perfect Plum Classic Inks
Whisper White, Sahara Sand, and Perfect Plum Card Stock
In Color Designer Series Paper Pack
Word Window, Modern Label, and Dotted Scallop Ribbon Border Punches
