Wonderful You

Here's a new set I recently purchased and decided to let it meet some ink last night... it's called Wonderful You. It has a gorgeous wheel that coordinates with it, and my intention was to use it on this card as well... but once again, the card had a mind of its own. None-the-less, here it is:

This is another example of where I let the Designer Series Paper make my color choices for me. Those stripes are from Sweet Always, and so I used a Pink Pirouette background, with some Pumpkin Pie and Regal Rose layers. When I originally looked at it, I thought it used Tangerine Tango. So in actuality, the outline of the flower is stamped with Tangerine instead of Pumpkin! Oops! I was feeling lazy, though, and didn't feel like re-doing it. I think it looks fine regardless... probably one of those instances where you wouldn't have known if I hadn't pointed it out, huh? Why do we open our big mouths to point out all of our flaws anyway?? My husband always chuckles at dinnertime when I set the meal on the table and say something to the effect of, "I accidentally left out one ingredient, so I hope it's okay"... Why can't I just set it in front of him and hope for the best?! I mean, how would he know it's missing something anyway?! He even TELLS me to stop pointing out those things so he can just enjoy it the way it is!

I digress... no real tricks to this card, so I guess that's why I got off on that tangent. Besides, you guys said that you DO read my posts, right?! Speaking of which, I will be coming back at you later this afternoon with the winner of my Blog Candy! ...and if you didn't know there was some to be had, then you probably aren't reading this right now anyway. ;)

I am critical of my own flaws when making multiples of the same card - like for invitations or something. They must be EXACT... but they're going to different people and unless they sit and do a side by side comparison... how would they know there is any difference? LOL
