I hope I'm actually going to get chance to be around to link my own card to it, because today is a Very Big Day in the Willis household, it's going to be my husband's first day of retirement, and we have exciting plans for the day that don't really involve me sitting here blogging (I wrote this earlier in the week). But on the other hand he'll probably find he has umpteen phone calls to make in order to Make It Official and I'll be left twiddling my thumbs.....
Now I don't know about you, but when I make a card and things go wrong, I dismantle it and start again - I don't stop and take a photo of it first. So I had to think long and hard about what to share.
Only in the last few days, I made the classic mistake of sticking the front panel on to a card upside down, and had to remove it and start again.....
But Darnell is really looking for completed cards, ones where you didn't realise until you'd finished that there is a blooper on it. I didn't think I had one, and then the other day I finished a card for a future Twofers DT project.
I was trying to give this card a masculine feel, so I decided to use a dark brown button as the embellishment on the ribbon wrap.
When I first finished it, I was really pleased with it, but when my husband saw it he said "That button spoils it". I got a second opinion from a couple of friends, both of whom agreed with him. So I slept on it (not literally, of course, that would have creased it) and next day I looked again and thought "That button spoils it". And it does, it's too big, too heavy, makes the card look as if it is about to topple over to the right, and doesn't link in with anything else in the design.
So I had to remove the button - have you any idea how strong Pinflair glue is? - and rescue it.
Do you want to see the rescued card? Well, I'm afraid you have a very long wait because I'm not sharing it until May 21st. APRIL FOOL!
