This card is the remade version of something I attempted to make in a rush last week.
Have you ever put a project together and growled because something landed where you didn’t quite intend? Sometimes, the unintended is OK (or even serendipitous!). Sometimes, the whole project gets trashed because of that flaw. This time, I actually salvaged the pieces and redid the card.
Here is the original rushed version:
The two top flowers are too even for me. I had adhesive on the back of the white sentiment, and was hovering over the flowers trying to space them correctly, and I snagged the last one (top right) in the wrong place. UGH. But I put it all together anyway, thinking maybe it would not bother me so much when my frustration wore off. WRONG.
I was able to blast the top of the card with my heat gun and peel off the sentiment and flowers without ruining the blue layer. I die cut another sentiment (I had stamped extras the first time), added a layer behind it, die cut new flowers and threw in a few butterflies and sequins.
Thanks for stopping by!
Tree update: Our neighbors had the 2 pear trees removed from between our houses yesterday.

Great card Kathy, and good save. Even if no one else would know it’s not as you intended, as the maker it’s all you can see, but so satisfying to be able to pull it back to how you like it 🙂

Thank you, Jenny! I do understand that NO ONE I am sending my cards to can see the flaws I see. And you are right, it was satisfying to pull it apart and get it right!
