I had to do it .. ..

it was no good - I didn't like the card the way it was (see post below) so after a bit of judicious trimming, matting with the dark brown cardstock, redoing the wiggly line with a brown Sakura Stardust pen and fixing the 3 big brads, this is how it looks now! Please excuse the scissors holding it down on my desk - it kept popping open every time I got the camera any where near taking the picture.

oh and for those that are keeping an eye on the proceedings here, yes the dumper truck has arrived, but no sign of the digger .. .. not sure where that's got to, hope it turns up before Monday morning!


  1. Both versions are pretty! Such a beautiful image!

  2. Hey hun, well, I'll be totally honest, I like both versions - but prefer this one. Totally gorgeous, and stunning colourwork on the flowers. You are a talented little thing. Hugs, Sxx

  3. Annie great stamping and colouring Lovely card Hugs Elaine

  4. I like both versions, love the colouring and the blue just make the image pop

  5. I much prefer this one - much much better & this allows the diagonal stripe of the cardstock to be visible.

  6. Love both versions Annie but I think this version just has the edge.

    Hope the digger turns up soon.

  7. Keeping everything crossed that the digger is there bright and early Monday!!!

    Loved the first post with your card but it really does pop now what a difference a bit of matting does!

    Have a wonderful weekend! Love Chanelle xxx

  8. You original colouring was perfect but I have to say that a good mount really does make all the difference and this card has a richer feel to it. Hugs, Lesley

  9. This is gorgeous Annie, I love how you've just had to tweek it! But you have to be happy with your creations! I know where your're coming from ;)
