The "Hot Mess Success" challenge is to "go messy on a card". Not in my comfort zone. Not. in. my. comfort. zone.
For this month's card, I used a variety of steps (some messy and some not) to alter a piece of designer paper that I didn't like into something usable. This was definitely a trial/error until I got to a point that I deemed acceptable.
I added a gorgeous flower (Technique Tuesday's Dazzling Dahlia and a sentiment (Taylored Expressions' Simple Strips Background) to complete the card.
