This card started coming together very quickly until I got to the blasted ribbon. Once I got it in place around the card I added a touch of dotted adhesive in various spots to hold it in place; afterwards when I decided I didn't really like it and wanted to remove it. I fussed with it last night and couldn't get the adhesive off, this morning I looked at it again and decided there was just NO WAY I was going to submit this card the way it looked. So with teeth gritted I removed the ribbon, and using my trusty adhesive eraser started trying to get rid of the dot glue. Believe it or not, that stuff came off and allowed me to re-attach the ribbon in a more pleasing design. I was not happy with the original card but the re-do was great! Whew! This could have gone either way, I could have ruined hours of work but I got lucky this time!
(The whole idea was to enter the card into a couple of challenges, but until I "repaired" my mess this card was headed for the round file. Don't you just hate when that happens! All that work and it is just not acceptable!)
OK, here are the challenges I have entered:
The Shining the Light Challenge at ODBD this time is a sketch.
The next is the SCS inspiration challenge IC227, Home Sweet ~; which is to make a card that says something about your home state, province, town or country. North Carolina is my state, and the state flower is the dogwood.
Thanks for coming by and allowing me to share my re-do with you. I would love to know what you think! Hoping you have a wonderfully blessed day! :)
