This is for todays Featured Stamper challenge.
This looks awkward because I messed up. Grrr
On the right hand side I thought I'd place brads instead of words since they were under the flowers. Of course after carefully punching all the holes, I discovered I'm about 4 brads short. No problem right? Just go and cut another piece of Certainly Celery. Only to find that in a moment of carelessness my entire small supply of CC has fallen victim to my diet coke which has toppled over when I wasn't looking!!!
Fine ... cover up the boo-boo with ribbon. Finish the card and put everything away, because clearly I'm extra uncoordinated today and should NOT be allowed to create things. I may just hurt myself in the process. hahahaha
Here is Sarah's card which is lovely and fun: http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...amp;ppuser=378
Great gallery Sarah. Once this phase of clumsiness goes away, I may come back and try again. :D
EDIT!!!! on top of everything else that has gone wrong, Sarah's card was a sketch challenge and we're not suppose to label them FS if we dont change the layout. I never pick SC designs when doing FS but this has just been one heck of a bad day for me to be stamping. :(

Well, as much as I hate to admit this and as sad as it makes me.....you may have made a very responsible and smart decision. In making this card you were piercing holes for the brads quite possibly using a paper piercer (affectionately know as the death weapon!). Maybe coming back to your stamp room on a different day was really just being plain old smart!
On the other hand, the really sad thing is that this is such a wonderful card that you might have to rethink the whole thing because obviously you make great stuff when uncoordinated.
I just don't want you to get hurt!

Girl - for someone who is having a bad day stampin' you sure did turn out a beautiful card! I guess I'll have to visit your gallery so I can see your great work, because this card just looks terrific!! :D In fact, if you would not have said anything, I doubt any of us could find a mess-up one! I still can't find a mess-up!!
