Joy and Holly

"There are no mistakes in crafting,

just opportunities to be more creative."

You can ask my crafting friends,
they'll tell you, this is my motto.
This card is a prefect example of that motto.
I made it with
"Joy" (#15703) and
"Holly" (#15701)
I stamped both images onto white card stock.  
The Holly is not a background image,
 I stamped it several times randomly over the card stock.
Then I colored them with FlexMarkers.
 Once I had this done,
they were just boring,
they just weren't right,
so I got out my blending tool and my Distress Inks
and added a bit of color around the edges
of the background piece.
Absolutely hated it! 
 The color was all wrong,
but I stuck with my motto
and kept playing with it and adding different colors
and I ended up with a card that I really like. 
It isn't what I was going for when I started out,
but that's okay.  I like it now!
So next time something isn't looking right,
 remember my motto and just mess around with it. 
I know, sometimes there is just no cure,
 but it sure can't hurt to try.
Thanks for stopping in to see what I have been up to,
I hope you'll stop back again soon.
Until next time, Happy Crafting!

It's a wonderful motto, Kristie! And it worked beautifully for this sweet and 'joy'ful card.
