I am Challenged

Have you ever had an idea for a card in your head and can't get it out??  Or colored something and it just isn't right?  And then you color it again, and again, get the picture here don't you?

I had a rough morning trying to get this card to work for me.  All in all, it should have been easy~  I had a sketch from the Crafty Ho's.  And a color theme from Melissa at Tuesday Morning Sketches.   My favorite color combination - my go to if I don't have a wonderful idea - is brown and blue.  I love this combo - I have some dp in my stash that may never see the light of day ~hehehe.

The image on this card is Leah with Flowers from Whimsie Doodles.  Isn't she adorable?  I colored her with Copics, but think I might try colored pencils with her...  The glitter is in the paper, so to speak and well, I surely hope to can see the sketch from the Ho's in my card.

I did restick the borders...had to get out my tacky tape, so they are not going anywhere now~

This card is a re-do of Tuesday's showing.  I wasn't happy with how it looked, so changed it up.  I hope y'all think this one is better!!

Thanks for stopping in today.  I hope everyone enjoys their day!!
