No photo, please

One of the best things about card making is you have so little investment in an individual card. If you create something that falls way short of a masterpiece, you can salvage it or just scrap it. That is what I did last night.

I had this great design rolling around my head all day. It was based on one I'd seen on another blog and I was adding my own interpretation. Something was definitely lost in the translation from my brain to my work table because what I created just didn't look that great. So then I started really playing with it and all I got was ... experience.

Yet, this is part of the fun of this hobby. It is just one card, no big loss. I had fun playing, I learned stuff and the next card is sure to be a masterpiece - or not, but either way, it will be fun.
