A Failed Challenge

I was playing along with a challenge when I made this card, but after I finished it, I realized the sketch had four square panels on the left side instead of the three I used. Ah well, Momma said there would be days like this!
I used River Rock card stock along with some intensely hoarded retired Apple Cider dsp from SU! The stamp was from a $1 bargain bin I found several years ago, but it's one of my favorites. I paper pieced the flower images with some polka dot DP and added some white dew drops to the centers. The sentiment is by Verve and the rest is pretty basic.
It's going to be a steamy one here in PA today, so stay cool wherever you are and have a fabulous Wednesday!

Oh Carol, there are no failed challenges, there are creative opportunities! I love the cards you've been making, they're fabulous!

Mama said there'd be days like this...hehe, you totally made me laugh.

No worries....four squares, three squares...it's beautiful! I love that color combo.

It WAS a scorcher today. It's almost 9 p.m. and it's still hot in the house.
