Mistakes happen

These cards did not start off as cards. Originally I was making a cover for a book but I stupidly trimmed a little too much off and ended up with it being too small for my needs. Rather than let the stamped images and card stock go to waste, I decided to cut it down even further and make two cards.

Sorry for the poor photography, I thought that I'd managed to crop most of the shadows out but there is still a whopping big one in the middle (from me). That will teach me to do things late at night.

Here's the card on the left in a little more detail.  The splats are supposed to be there, but the lighting did not show that they are shimmery. I'm afraid that you are going to have to believe me when I say the cards look better in real life.

Stampin' Up! supplied used:

Stamp sets : Oh Hello and Lacy & Lovely
Card Stock : Soft Suede, Naturals Ivory and Very Vanilla
Ink : Early Espresso
Accessories : Stamp-a-ma-jig, Gold Glow and Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, Scallop Oval, Dimensionals and Stampin' Trimmer

This should post on Monday which is a Bank Holiday so I hope you all enjoy the day. I have no idea what we will be up to other than, George's is talking at the Conference today so I will be off doing something by myself. I'm hoping that by the time I get home tomorrow afternoon that my latest Stampin' Up! order will have arrived. I will be sharing what's in it later in the week.
