A Little Tweak

I'm stuck inside this weekend while I recover from the dreaded PINKEYE! I really sucks. I feel like a bit of a pirate being able to only see out of one eye and all, so "Arg!". I really didn't like the card I did yesterday anyway, so I made a little tweak. Actually, I made an entirely new card. I love the glittered frosting from the first version, but the rest of it just didn't work for me. I started with the same foundation and just changed the focal point embellishments. I'm still not satisfied. I don't think I ever am. Which card do you like the best?Here's what I did: I started with an A2 base in black then added a 2.5" x 4" piece of patterned paper from KI Memories "Jacks" to the bottom half. The green is the other side of the pp and was ran through my Cuttlebug. It's cut to 3"x4". I then used my craft knife to cut a slit for the ribbon to slide through on the fold. I tied two pieces of the pink stitched ribbon (from Michael's) each in a knot. The black flower and green circle are from a Quickutz die, and I then used the Making Memories Tag Maker to add the silver rim. The brad is from Making Memories as well and is used to attach the blue flower (Bazzill). I used pop dots under the rimmed tag as well as under the black flower to adhere them both. And...that's it!

I like different things on both cards, like the embossed panel of this one :)

Maybe if you leave the cards away and don't look at them for a while, maybe when you see them again you'll like them a little more.

I hope you get better from your eye. Think you're getting a glance at 'my world' :p

Great cards! I love the texture on this one, but I love the cupcake too. Sorry you got pinkeye. I had it a couple of months ago. It really sucks!

I like this one.. but I am partial to the flowery look. You would think that with two sons I would be less of a girly girl but that is not the case. Cute card..

Nice card..... I love these colors.... I hope your eye is feeling better.... I feel your pain. I had pinkeye in both eyes at the same time before... That was so miserable.
