Ever Have One Of Those Cards?

Do you ever have one of those cards that just gives you fits?!? Well that's what this one did for me. After 3 tries at coloring the image somewhat how I wanted, I screwed up the sentiment and had to start all over again. I tried just trimming it off first, but then it didn't look right so I gave up and here is what I finally came up with. The sentiment is not inked perfectly on this one, but it's going to have to do. It is hard to see in the photo, but I colored the sky with my shimmer chalks in a light blue. Image & sentiment are from Stamping Bella. I colored the main image with watercolor pencils. I did the "grass" with my Pebbles shimmer chalks as well. Wisteria note card is from Memory Box. Blueberry Polka Dot DP is an A Muse 4-bar note card cut down.

oh my gosh- i have those cards ALL the time! Isn't that the worst? I can't even tell that your sentiment is off AT ALL. I think we're our own worst critics! Cute card- love the colors!

Wowie Nancy!!!! I LOVE THIS ADORABLE CARD!!!! So sweet and happy!! Although it gave you trouble, the end results are simply gorgeous!! I absolutely love that CUTE main image (if you feel like sending a couple stamped images my way sometime, I'd be ok with that ;), LOL!!) and the colors you picked for this are SO beautiful together! I love the 4 bar notecard as a layer and not just the main card! Great job!! Beautiful use of the shimmer chalks and pencils!!! You are an amazing stamper!!
