Oh I Wish I Hadn't Done That...

Hello Everyone

I hope you've had a good weekend - mine has been the normal boring kind of a one which involved shopping, washing, ironing, cooking and housework! I did take a break to visit my Mum and Dad for a while though.

I've got around to making another card - this one is for my goddaughter who will be 12 tomorrow - Happy Birthday Cate! But, do you ever do something and then wish you hadn't? I wish I hadn't made such a bright blue and green background for the image - it doesn't really match the backing paper - I wish now I had used pink and orange or something!

I'm not sure, but I think the image is called Upside Down and I think I bought it from Funky Kits a couple of years ago - isn't this a fun image - I wish I could do cartwheels like that. I stamped the image inside too, at a different angle, to make it look like she was moving! The papers are Kay & Co. Not much more to say about it really.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - the sketch I followed. And I was so happy to have been chosen in their top 3 last week - woohoohoo!
Crafts 4 Eternity - recipe - flower, ribbon and bling

I hope you enjoy your week ahead!

We have a few family birthdays over the next few weeks, so I should be popping back a bit more often!

Love, Andrea xx

I think your card is lovely and I love the blue and green background. It makes her look like she is outside doing cart wheels. I really love your image. It is really a fun one. I am sure that Cate will love it too! Thanks for joining us and Happy Birthday to Cate!

It looks perfect to me, more natural to be green and blue:) I have this stamp too and have only used it once but might give it another go. Thanks for playing along with us at C4E this week.
