Worst Card Ever ...

Probably my last post for a few days, as I am back to work tomorrow L. Thought you might get a giggle out of seeing possibly the UGLIEST card ever made! I did it for an, SU demo only, challenge on Splitcoast Stampers. The challenge was in three parts. First a colour combo, Baja Breeze (which we don't have in the Aussie catalogue yet, so I substituted Blue Bayou), Blush Blossom, and Cameo Coral. Now those of you that know me, will know that I cannot bear the colour Cameo Coral and studiously avoid using it – ever! As for Blush Blossom, I have 3 pristine , untouched sheets, that have been sitting in my stash since I first bought a pack of mixed soft subtles 18 months ago! So obviously the colour combo alone was going to test me out.

The second part of the challenge was a sketch. This sketch:

No probs, sketches are very useful starting points for cards when you need an inspiration boost. There are literally hundreds of card sketches on Splitcoast Stampers You can check them out here.

The third part of the challenge is a technique, this month it is Sparkly Stained Glass. Again, no prob, I love checking out new techniques and this was one I hadn't tried before. However, between the colours, the sketch and the technique, somehow my card became very busy and soooo not me! Anyway TA DAAAA

What do YOU think?! Fill in the poll and let me know. Lynda (Stampinkins) says she has made one worse – but I don't believe her … At least I am living up to my New Year's resolution, to be more adventurous with my colour choices!

Thanks for stopping by.
