Two hours and a glass of wine later...

DISCLAIMER:  You must read the post just prior to this one or this won't make any sense at all.  Of course, after reading the other post it still may not make sense  (I've had a glass of wine! LOL!)

This is the card that caused all the commotion!  I like it.  It's simple and cute.  But I couldn't leave well enough alone.


I grabbed my mat stack from SU and used the circle guide to add a couple of big dots.  Hmmm...still not right.


So, I added a large pearl and some doodledots.  The single pearls didn't do it for me either.


If one big one isn't right, then maybe three yellow ones will pick up the colors in the butterflies.  Still okay but just not what I had in mind.


In a flash of creative inspiration, I got out the buttons.  That's where my button saga began.


Thirty minutes later and close to a nervous breakdown, I give up!  Plop some silver stickles in the corners and cover the butterflies with Glossy Accents.  Stomp to the kitchen and opened a bottle of wine!


Here it is several hours later, and I really think I like the first card the best after all!

I personally like them all. I do feel your pain though. I have trouble deciding what to add on every card/lo I do.

HE he heee.. I love it. Havin a glass of the wine to toast your outcome.. I am a simple crafter as well. Every time I try to bling it up ... I look in the mirror at my non bling self and think the heck were you thinking...

LOL you make me giggle! I have a similar problem. I make AND FINISH a card, put it away, come back to look at it the next day and decide it "needs something". So out comes the Jelly Roll pen, and I ruin it!! Its so aggervating not to be able to leave well enough alone haha.

You made me nearly cry from laughter at this story. I can safely say this because I am *SURE* that I would do the same thing if I actually used anything in my embellishment bin....

Despite the agony they caused you, my favorite is the one with the buttons! In any event, I like the finished project!
