This is my card for today's Ways To Use It Challenge:http://www.baka-updates.com/releases.php. However it did not start out that way. My Mom bought this set and I was at her house making Valentines. I started making this for my husband who happens to be hispanic and looooooooovvvves color. I planned on making a Clean and simple card using Martha Stewart's Heart Valentine border punch and the Love image. I embossed the "Love" and colored it in with different colored markers. I then put glue and glitter on it and when brushing off the excess glitter my letter "o" smeared. Uh Oh. What now? I could not make another, my Mom has the set. I panicked, then I thought about how I could cover it up and one thing led to another and Voilah! I have an embellishment pile up card for today's challenge. LOL Anyone else laughing because it is very funny, even my teenage son laughed at my story. Probably because he knows I am a freak about my cards. Anyway....TFL

This card is fantastic. The colours and the flower are brilliant. But the thing I really love is that you've made a mistake into a beautiful feature on your card. I love that about card making, mistakes can lead to wonderful creative flashes.
