This card should have been SO easy. I had a strong mental picture from the moment that I saw the sketch. But it would not translate. I saw bright stamped snowflake circles on top of the nordic print (too busy), I tried punched snowflakes (didn't have the right sizes), I tried bright pink buttons with pink paper under the gray (couldn't find anything to go between the buttons)...I refuse to add up how long I spent on this simple card. I dug to the bottom of my Christmas embellishment box and found an old container of plastic embellishments which I ended up using, but even that was difficult (cute mittens then not three of the same color). Am I whiny today, or what? I shouldn't be because, in the end, I like the card!
