Sketch #250 from Operation Write Home.
I was inspired to die cut several circles from the nice part of the background.
Sentiment is from Hampton Arts Ki Memories Greeting
I dry embossed lines every inch along the front of the card and the sentiment fit pretty nicely between the lines. I'm not happy that the ribbon shows the circle shape underneath it. Other than that I really like the card.
I think there is a lesson to be learned here: salvage what you can when you mess up a card front whether it is just a terrible smudge or an idea that didn't work out. Die cut what ever shapes you can from the salvageable parts and use them in a new way.
