A bit of a crazy story: I picked out some pretty dp, the stamp of hydrangeas from this set and some other supplies to make my mom in law a card. When I looked to see what I made her for mom's day I saw I had used the same stuff. So, I had to rethink things. Goofy!!
So, with this card I used my MS punch for the first time. I guess the card turned out okay, but I wonder if I should have made the middle panel and lower dp come all the way across. I get so impatient. I don't want to make practice cards, I always want the first attempt to come out perfect. Do you feel the same way, or do you practice a lot?? TFL

This card is so elegant! As always with your cards, I love the many different patterns and textures you use. I never do cards just for practise, I just look where the stamps and colors take me! But I sometimes stamp things onto a scrap first to find out about "critical" edges on a stamp, or I use new punches on scraps first to try them. But no complete "practise cards"!
