Have you ever made a card and were unhappy with how it looked? Then you proceed to upload it to your gallery, even though you're having second thoughts?...It bugs you until you decide you MUST tear it apart to make improvements? This happens to me more that I would like to admit!!! LOL!!! I usually have a certain look that I'm aiming for when I begin. It's so frustrating when you are trying but not achieving "that" look.
For example: I began with the card right above the text. It was okay IRL-- but my photo just wasn't cutting it. I had sewn around the perimeter of the decorator paper-- didn't show in the photo-- the ribbon that I used looks a different color pink in the photo...argh!!!!
In my second attempt I chose to add more of the photo-discolored pink ribbon and added a sentiment. My sewing still does not show, but I feel happier with the end result!
This card was for today's Technique Challenge over at Splitcoast. We were to use Twinkling H2O's along with watercoloring pencils or crayons and the color pink to focus on Breast Cancer Awareness month. See the challenge here.

Have a wonderful day-- and remember-- tearing apart a card and making it right is worth it! :)
