Since it's April Fool's day, I decided to play along with Suzanne's challenge over at the cardyard and post my ugliest card ever. This may not be the worst card I ever made, but it's got to be included in the lot somewhere! I recently went through my box of cards so I could toss, donate, or re-work some of the disasters, and I found this gem I made 2 years ago. Ha Ha!
What was I thinking? LOL Not only is the card pathetic, the photo is blurry, so I consider it a double whammy! LOL I took the card apart and decided to save the ribbon and card base for another use.
As I was using a portion of that card base and putting this card together, my husband walked into the room and said "that card is really ugly!" Wha??! I said "what's wrong with it?" He said "the colors, the design, the paper - everything!!" Sheesh! I guess I should just toss everything and fuhgedaboudit!! LOL
Anyway, I'm using the OWH Stars and Stamps sketch 166 along with the Dynamic Duos #46 which is to use Primrose Petals with your choice of another color. The color I'm using is Early Espresso, and I've also used Vanilla card stock as well. I assembled the components for the background, and then flipped it, putting the narrowest panel on the left because it just looked better that way. I decided to add the 3 embellishments in a vertical line to balance everything
Perhaps my re-purpose attempts are a complete failure, but what the heck. It's April Fool's day, and it's good to laugh at yourself :)
Wishing you all a great Monday, and thanks for stopping by for a good laugh today. I hope you'll consider sharing your ugliest card too :)
