Pin Bombs and Busts


I sometimes - rarely - make a card that I'm super excited about. I also sometimes make a card that I think deserves living in the trash can. That's what happened this week, when I made my card for the new {PIN}Spirational Challenge.

Here's just a painful little snippet:



UGH! 
Yes, it's definitely trashcan worthy.


Soooooooooooooo... I went back to the beginning.

Great card! I will be purchasing some of that ink. It's so vibrant!
I know we tend to be our own worst critics. I like both of your cards.

I actually prefer the 'blooper' card to the final one Jeanette - how's that for being perverse!? Love the blue and yellow colour combinations

How critical we are of our own work. The "trash" card would be loved by someone, but I do love the card you made instead.
