Ever Have a Failure...


...become something ok? This card is just ok; it certainly counts as 1 of the 10 needed this week. but, I tried all day to make the Papertrey Casual Midweek Challenge #42. See the challenge here . Instead, this finally came to be on the table. I decided to just let it happen, and will try for the CMWC tomorrow.
First, I cut the card out using the Sizzix scallop card die and SU's 12 x 12 whisper white cs. I used Papertrey's Bitty Baby Blessings and Just Hatched stamps. The papers are all Papertrey as well- Bitty Baby Blessings 12 x 12, plus Lemon Tart and Spring Moss. Ribbon is Spring Moss double stitched. The little 'welcome' is savvystamps, I used SU's Old Olive marker to stamp it. The white is SU's Whisper White. Remind me to buy Papertrey;'s white on my next order, ok? I had to try three times to get the SU craft to stamp correctly; I want to try Papertrey's version!
The wheensy piece of purple ribbon stuck in the knot is a piece of SU's 1/4 inch grosgrain. 1/4 inch is such a nice size, and they have so many colors~ it's a good thing!
