Sorry to bore you all, but the card in my previous post was a mess, I am so upset with myself! Looks like I was drunk when I put that together! Funny how I did not see it until I saw my blog in Google Reader! That is so crooked, I could not believe I did not see it! I have worked on this card for 4 days now, I had a hard time getting the punched purple to fit the image, so I ended up taping it in pieces to the back of the image. I know it would have been easier to just print the purple paper again, but because I ran out of pink ink in my printer, and refilled it, it now printed a different color purple paper and it did not match my background piece either. This is a good example of what happens when I don't use my Perfect Layers Rulers, no kidding, and this is why I have them, this just drives me nuts! I can't stand it when I glue it together crooked, I have a mental problem with it I think, it's a real pet peeve of mine. lol. I think the reason I did not see it was because I was trying so hard to get the Stickles that I trimmed on to the lace edges to show in the photo that I obviously did not see the whole set up was crooked. So I spent the better part of today trying to delicately take it apart and straighten it out. At first I thought it was the way I cut and taped the Fleur de Lis border on to the back of the picture, it was slightly uneven, but after tearing it all apart and adding pieced corners from the other punch, (I thought if I rounded out the corners they would not look as crooked) after sifting through my waste basket to find pieces of the Fleur de Lis to tape back on...I realized that was not the problem at all! My inspiration for the whole piece was the line of trim from the headbands I placed around the picture, that was my culprit, I glued that on crooked! So I pushed and nudged, and I am afraid if I try to take it off I will totally ruin the card. Which by the way was already in the envelope ready to be sent out! I was going to just replace the card in that post, but then I thought you all might get a kick out of seeing what I went through.
Thanks for looking... and laughing with me. ~Diane
