If you click on the link below, you will see a very PRETTY...well, ok...Somewhat pretty crocodile design. I thought, WOW, I have a CB folder that would work and I could use that as my background and draw some sort of crocodile to go with it. It would be CUTE! I mean, how hard could it be???
Well...Needless to say (as you can see for yourself!) that the more I swiped the Colorbox black ink around my CB crocodile scales, the more UGLIER it got!!!!! I kept thinking.....EEWWWWW!!! This isn't like the picture in the link!!! How am I gonna salvage this?
THEN, I remembered that I had a stamp from River City Rubberworks that I had never inked up and thought that it would be appropriate with this UGLY bg!!!! So, I dug it out and inked it up! It says: Be what you is. If you old and ugly, then Be old and ugly, But Be What You Is!
My hubby agreed when I showed him the card. He said, and I quote "That sure is one UGLY card!" (He may just get this one for his b-day! Hehehe).
Well, there you have it! This card may never see the inside of a sent envelope, but this was my inspiration and it does exist! Hehe! Now, I'll get some caffeine in me and see if I can do a little better on my next try for the Inspiration Challenge!
