This is a recent commission for a lady who wanted a 30th anniversary card (PEARL) managed to incorporate the names (mike & Eve) by using some stickers form the DCWV wedding stack, and some off cut papers. The pearl heart I am ashamed to say is another sticker (I like to make things like that rather than buy) although it was a present so doesnt count. Had the idea in mind of how I wanted this to look, and came out very close.
Now I know if something is not working out you should walk away and come back to it, but for some reason I kept trying to perservere to get this card right. But STILL wasn't happy, so I eventually slept on it (not literally of course!) and thought- it needs detail! So added some diamantes, primas and a few dragonflies and ah! thats better! Happy now :) So here is the BEFORE
and AFTER shot
and this was another card using the off cuts, I smudged the stamped 'Get well soon' by accident, so kept on smudging and thought it looked alright! Good old discovery by accident!
