Throwback Tuesday #6

A fun, happy card for today's post!

The deets: every Tuesday, I will post a card that has been sitting in the draft closet too long. At the end of each month, I will randomly select a winner from all the valid challenge entries!
The challenge: link up an old papercraft related blog post, card photo, or post one of your old drafts/pictures! An additional entry will be given to those who comment on the Throwback Tuesday posts for that month.
The prize: a big ol' box stuffed with scrapbooking goodies!
Sorry, but due to crazy shipping costs, this challenge is open to the US only!

My previous thoughts:

The inside...

That sentiment from an old Sugarloaf set (part of my first stamp set kit!) goes so well with this fun cuckoo set from Hero Arts.
The card front...

I accidentally mixed some blue with a gold died ribbon, to get this almost puke green seam binding. Didn't want to waste it though, so I stuck it on this card.

I'm so obsessed with this cuckoo set...love those clocks. :)

The fix: the ribbon! Again! Note to self - if you have messed up ribbon, do NOT use it! The only other thing that stands out to me is the lack of color in the main stamped panel. I think I a little bit of coloring in the image, and maybe a brighter pearl would've helped. But, I do give myself a pat on the back for the inside sentiment - I don't do that nearly enough, and it really spices up cards.

Thanks for stopping in today and God bless!

  1. Hey Clare, I would only change the ribbon, it's not that ugly as you describe but maybe add the needed color with a different colored ribbon!!

  2. I think the ribbon matches the paper...so I wouldn't change it..I love this card...
