I'm not 100% in love with my card but given it was attempt 1,001, I wanted to post it anyway. This simple little card almost filled up my waste basket with failures. Ugh. I don't know why I just didn't give up and move on. I had a light bulb moment though and realized I don't like Mossy Meadow - so I don't think there's any card I could have made that made me happy.
I am fascinated with personal preferences for color. I would have preferred a more yellow-toned green. For me, olives are more "alive". On a different note, I am not in love with the new Stampin' Up colors but this weekend, I had other crafters in my craft room and as they wandered through my obsessively large cardstock collection, guess which colors they loved and pulled out to use - those new colors! I'm also not a fan of yellows - and other people list it as their favorite color! Having said all of that, Mossy Meadow may never again come out to play in my craft room!!
Anyway, here's a different angle on my card. I got this stamp set for that little sheer bow - LOVE it. I wanted to give it a little shine so covered it with Wink of Stella. It spread the ink a bit and darkened it but I still love the look. I also added a few glitter drops in the center of the flowers.
