Fuzzy head equals fuzzy stamping

Am beginning to get rather bored feeling sorry for myself! Have spent quite a lot of time in bed this week - actually this week appears to have passed by in a bit of a haze with a couple of lucid and alert moments dropped in between the headaches, coughs and sneezes.....

I feel better than I did on Tuesday (could I have felt any worse I ask myself - LOL) but am still not 100% back on my feet - I must be ill 'cos I'm currently laying in second position in our Winter Frostbite league and couldn't raise any energy to go to the green today - so I have sat here and wished bad games today on everyone around me in the league table.......!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's a bit of a novelty me being anywhere near the top and sadly it's going to be short lived!

The other thing you should not do whilst your head is fuzzy is stamp directly onto an almost finished card and expect it to be straight and unsmudged....................
Which is why there is a sentiment attached to this card with a spellbinders tag.
I was so mad! But then being mad made my head ache even more so I settled in hiding the mistake instead of consigning the card to the bin!

The image is a peony from Beccy's, coloured with watercolours and framed with another piece of card which has had most of a circle removed from the bottom corner with a nestie.

I embossed two lines down the right hand side and glued on a couple of pink pearls to finish.
Am dipping this into the Less Is More waters this week, which has a challenge of Pink, hoping that it has enough of the colour on it to stop it from sinking!
Updated - Just noticed that Beccy's Blog has a challenge where you can enter any project using a Beccy's image this month so have submitted my pink peony!

Quick question - is anyone else having bother uploading their pics to Blogger? Have had this problem for a while - they load eventually after lots of 'Server returned invalid response' attempts - but if anyone knows why this keeps happening would appreciate knowing how to fix?

  18. Great design idea to use the 'off page' circle cut out to highlight the flower. Do hope you are feeling better.

  19. What a pretty card Viv, I love the soft colours. You did a fantastic job colouring the Peony, it looks beautiful and I like that you matched the ink for the sentiment with the main colour of your image... keeps everything consistent.
