I've heard it said that a smudge just means it's handmade and therefore more precious. Other times, I've called mistakes "design opportunities". How many embellishments are hiding boo-boo's?
On this card, almost everything's a mistake or a reject. Failed embossing experiments. Discards from die-cut frames. Some dp and bling that were clearly errors in judgement with a coupon obsession. What was I thinking??! Just because I have a coupon doesn't mean I HAVE to make a purchase!! Remnants of ribbon. Whatever!
Perfect sentiment from Verve's blue skies stamp set.

Haha - fun description of your card. Wow if this is a mistake then you should keep making them;) This is really pretty. I love how you've turned what you called mistakes or rejects into a thing of beauty.

LOL! I know what you mean about buying just because we can! I do that all the time and have a bunch of supplies that 'might' never be used. ;-) I think your card is lovely. The colors are so nice together, and that ribbon is adorable! Love the sentiment.

You are amazing!!! You turn mistakes into Masterpieces!!!!! It's terrific!!! I made a mistake on mine. I put it all together and realized I forgot the ribbon!!!! I carefully pulled the paper away and tucked in the ribbon ends then used Tombo glue to secure it once more. Sigh!!!
