Pin Bombs and Busts

I sometimes - rarely - make a card that I'm super excited about. I also sometimes make a card that I think deserves living in the trash can. That's what happened this week, when I made my card for the new {PIN}Spirational Challenge.

Here's just a painful little snippet:

Yes, it's definitely trashcan worthy.

Soooooooooooooo... I went back to the beginning.

Here's the inside:

Oh... and just in case you like to see other people fail, here's the entire Blooper card:

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

  1. Great card! I will be purchasing some of that ink. It's so vibrant!
    I know we tend to be our own worst critics. I like both of your cards.

  2. Great Card--I love the colors!

  3. I actually prefer the 'blooper' card to the final one Jeanette - how's that for being perverse!? Love the blue and yellow colour combinations

  4. How critical we are of our own work. The "trash" card would be loved by someone, but I do love the card you made instead.
