To My Friend

Sometimes covering up a boo boo is a good thing.

Today I made a card, and it so happened that I made a bad ink mistake on the nearly-finished project. Don't you hate when that happens? I had stamped the card with pink ink and, although it did not show up very well, it was okay. However, as I was continuing to work on the card, the ink, which was not dry, smeared. I wiped off the pink ink, and since the ink color did not show up very well, after experimentation, a green ink was used. But the stamp did not stick well to the acrylic block and dropped (fully inked, of course) onto the card. Well, that was a disappointment.

I got out my Mini Fanciful Flourish die (Cheery Lynn) and made some green and white cuts from it and put them over the ink boo boo. It did not cover the mistake completely, but if you don't know to look for it, it may not be so noticeable.

The flower and leaves are from the Cricut cartridge "Flower Shoppe." The doily is from the Cricut cartridge "Sophia." They are placed on a pink strip cut with a Paper Studio border punch that is overlaid with lace from a spool of white 5/8" lace . The background papers are from a discontinued wallpaper book.

This card could be a birthday card, or a just because card.

Here is the card:

Romans 10:9-11

If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by confessing with your mouth that you are saved. NLT
