Nothing Amazing!

You may have stopped by expecting to see an amazing card,sorry,I'm going to have to let you down :( Sometimes a card takes far too long to make,you keep playing with it,knowing somethings not right but can't put your finger on what. You go to bed leaving it on the table and spend half the night tossing and turning hoping that the morning will bring the revelation. Well it didn't happen Friday night so I bought a new piece of paper hoping that it would bring the didn't,another night passed by with little sleep but good news,looking at the card again this morning I think I've solved the problem. So the card is completed ready to go in the post tomorrow!

I hear you say "3 days,only to come up with this simple creation!!!!! " No,this isn't it,you've got to wait till Wednesday morning to witness the reason for my lack of sleep,this is what came about when I was tidying away all the bits and pieces I'd discarded trying to create the afore mentioned.

The rather large pearlescent pink flower is a sizzix die cut with the addition of one of my lovely Paperchase gems. I thought I'd give you an areal view of how I attached the sentiment,I always do this with this particular Happy Birthday as I think the arrangement of the letters lends it to shaping. I glue some places flat and add foam pads to other areas.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CSSC,Girly girl,
Gingerloft Challenge 3,All that glitters or bling,
That's it for today,by the way,had you noticed anything new in my side bar? I had a good week on the challenge front last week,I won Southern Girls Challenge,Won Fairy Friday's challenge meaning that I'm guest designer on the next challenge and was in the top 3 in Charisma card's challenge. How lucky am I, I've won 6 new digi images to play with. If you fancy the chance of winning some Digi images why not give Scrapbook Sister's card challenge a go.
Thanks for stopping by,

This is a lovely card Julie, I like the simple design. I do know what it's like when a card just won't come together though. This week's Anyone for Anya? card was like that. You wouldn't think it from how simple the final card was but I can seriously make another card with the bits I tried and discarded.
