Yesterday I had one of those days where I needed to make a card, but no matter what I had in mind or tried, I was just not happy with the end result. I cut up various bits of patterned paper, embossed them, shaped them and teamed them together swapped them about but just wasn't happy with the anything I came up with.
The card I am posting here is not that card I was trying to create yesterday but a card I created today using up the bits I tried to incorporate on the one yesterday. I created this card today for the second TUIC Challenge this month. Which was to create a card inspired by April Showers brings May Flowers which is being hosted by Heather on her blog Stamping Mommy.
