A card dedicted to Danielle Flanders of Papertrey Ink

Hello again,
I know you are probably getting tired of my posting as this is my third one of the day.  The deadline for the grand prize of Papertrey Ink's 6th Anniversary Celebration draws near.....less then 7 hours left folks!!!

So I am here to case one of these lovely cards made by Danielle Flanders:

I chose to case the 2nd card down on the right side.  I loved ALL of these cards too and it was hard to choose but I haven't used Rosie Posie in way to long so it won!  I just love Danielle's design style. She has such a way with embellishments and details on her cards....the unexpected little finishing touch is what comes to mind!  She adds a special magic to all of her projects and I love visiting her blog to see what she is up to.  Plus she also designs for Lily Bee and Pink Paislee, not to mention the big SC!, and they are some of my favorite design paper companies!  This card is for you Danielle! 

I loved this card...right up until I screwed up the stamp under the sentiment!  I felt it needed something under so I added a stamp from Mat Stack 1 but didn't like the way it looked.

 Did I ever tell you I used to work at a bank.  Sometimes I would have to re-do checks and we would use this liquid that erases the bank number and amount at the base of the check.  Then we programmed a machine and re-printed the numbers.  How I wish I could have done that with this card - just erase that last little stamp and do something else!  Or nothing as I adore the sentiment from Signature Greetings!!!!  My embossing in white was perfect - that never happens by the way - and then I end up not liking the very last thing I did to this card...ho hum!  The absolute beauty of Danielle's original design is still there but....ugh that one little (HUGE) mistake!!!

Thanks for looking!

  1. Oh this is fabulous! Many times I wish I had ink erasers! Beautiful!

  2. Its still very pretty. Any way you can take off the doily and flower and scoot it down a bit. I am always adding to a card to hide a mistake. Enjoy your little break !

  3. It is still BEAUTIFUL! You are your own worst critic! LOVE the hexagons and the flowers!~ WOW!

  4. Beautiful cards! I LOVE those flowers...great job!!!

  5. You are so funny, that conversation goes through my head all the time ... "why oh why did you not STOP with what you had before, Kelly?!?" Your card turned out great though, Jill. It's lined up perfectly below the two colored letters in your sentiment : )
