I had a little time this mornign while my stuff is cooking for the picnic today so I tried to do the Inspiration challenge found here http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/fo...d.php?t=262647
Well I think this turned out to be either the ugliest or next to the ugliest card I ever made. But I don't card. I used the Cuttlebug paisley die cut things. Wow, what a waste of time. Anyone want them? I am never using them again. Takes forever and looks yucky!.

Oh Kay, you are too funny! Your card is not that bad, love the colors and the RIW and Paisley stamps. I bought the paisley die cuts and they are still in the package. Are you telling me to leave them in there? I really don't think your card qualifies for the ugliest ever award, there's just a lot of paisley going on! Have fun at your picnic, we are off to a family gathering too.

I have made uglier cards than this. (I was contemplating purchasing the CB paisley dies, but never did.) I would not call your card ugly. You certainly picked up the elements in the inspiration piece! The shirt is bright and busy, and so is your card! ;-)

I also have this die still in the package. I'm afraid to take it out! Seems like everyone screems after they try to use it. Someday I will be brave and go for it!! You did a great job with the inspiration challenge. I can tell that you really spent alot of time putting this together. Don't be so hard on yourself. I like it!!
You crack me up, Kay!! I've got several CBs that I think WHAT WAS I THINKING! I don't have that one and admire how you tried to work with it--bet some good ideas can be gleaned from it--I have stacks of stuff that maybe some parts I hate but find others worth using again in another way--it's all a journey to get to the right place--I just try to enjoy the trip (By the way, you ain't seen ugly til you've seen my stack)!
