Maybe Not My Cutest!

Edited: [I think] I fixed it! With just a few changes, this one just feels better to me. Thanks for all your sweet comments, and I know I'm my worst critic, but when something just doesn't feel right, I usually will fix it--regardless if it no longer fits the sketch! I actually made 7 changes...can you guess what they are? ;)

[Here's My Original Post--------------------------------]

Not sure if it's because I combined this sketch with my use of nesties, or the paper combo or ??? Not quite sure, but this one almost went right into my circular file! :( I know I can do better, so I will try again later. I used this week's Moday Mojo sketch challenge. I did add yellow stickles to the candle flames and glitter pens to the ribbon on cake and icing too, but you can't see those in this photo. But don't click to enlarge--prolly not worth your time, LOL. I've got a full day ahead, so hopefully see ya tomorrow!

What's wrong with it? I think it looks great!! I love the bright, birthday colors and the images is darling! I also love how you tied the ribbon on the bottom of the nestie (will have to remember that when my set gets here!) I love it! Great card!

Kristine, it's great. I sometimes think that about my cards (and probably many others do too!!!), but hopefully they are not as bad as I first think. I love the bright sunny colours, the image and sentiment are both cute, and the embossing detail looks great. Its a good one, I promise.

I think we're all our own worst critic, you know? Your card is totally adorable! I think the sketch was just really tough... I'm having mixed feelings about mine too! :)

Hmmm 7 changes? Let's see... You added buttons, a red ribbon, changed the orientation of your bottom blue layer, sponged the main image background and the cute little hedgie's belly, and colored in the open circles on your sentiment. LOL, phew, say that 10 times fast. :P

Dani said...

I think they are both adorable! I do know what you mean though, sometimes it just isn't right. And it usually bugs until you figure it out! LOL! :)

Diane said...

Kristine,I do think you are too hard on yourself!!!
I can see 6 changes,which are:
added the red buttons
added the red ribbon with the yello
switched the cb at the bottom to the left side
colored the sentiment
colored the hedgie's tummy
highlighted the white bg in yellow

It was beautiful,but with the changes,It is so much more beautiful!!!
