Keeping Things Real
Decided to keep things real, and show you a card that I fought, and fought, and fought with while creating, and in the end, am not very fond of. Ever make one of those cards??
Experience has taught me that when a card is that hard to create, I should just toss it and start over. However, after struggling for so long to make a card "blog worthy", it isn't always easy to deep six it in the trash can - case in point with this card LOL!
This was my first attempt at a card for the recent Verve Inspirations Hop, and a number of hours later, it just wasn't doing it for me so I went back to the drawing board and created a second one which came together much more easily. Note to self: "let it go" when it is a struggle and move on!
