Colour Creating the night away!! Week 12

Hello to all of you out in Blogland, I hope we find you well!!
Tonight I bring you a card that I'll stick on the Colour Create Challenge
this week, as the colors are black, white and pink,
with the optional challenge of adding in polka dots,
and well, I love ALL of those components, so... had to give it a whirl.

As I see this card, it is a mess.
I misaligned the stripes while gluing,
I flocked Fluffles, which made my piercing less than precise,
my hand-made sentiment is not really that impressive,
I CHOPPED into a circle.
So, sort of a mess. It speaks to my being a rookie, lol.
Despite its imperfections, I captured what I set out to capture,
and I've been working on it for A LONG TIME,
so I'm gonna share!!!

Usually, I like home-made, but in this case, I might have taken away from the card. In fact, I might yank the sentiment off!! This card is for a friend of mine who, once or twice a year, I send a box of goodies. With shipping as high as it is, semi-anuually is the best I can do!! Anyhoo, we call them Magic Boxes, or majick if you are feeling up to it, a magic box packed full of little pick-me-ups and home-made goodies, Magic Boxes would put a smile on anyone's face.... The colors are her favorite, so this seems like the card challenge I needed to get me to crank out a card for the next Magic Box.

I had a hard time with Fluffles, I wasn't sure just what to do with the image ((Frilly Fluffles))I decided on layering the hat, created a faux feather and added ribbon, flocked Fluffles, glazed the box, colored with watercolor pencils, If you happen to be curious about papers or accesories, drop me a line and I will get the specifics for ya.

Thanks for looking at my creation, hope you didn't get a headache or anything, I know it's a bright and busy one. If you feel so inclined, leave a comment.

I love them, they makes my day =)

It's gorgeous Stephanne - don't be so hard on yourself. We all make a card then look and see things we should have done something differently. Fabulous choice of papers and I love that cute image with his little feathered hat.
Thanks for joining us at CC.
hugs Heather xx

I think you're being too hard on yourself too. Probably no one else will notice your 'mistakes'. Your card is very pretty.

Stephanne, this is a cute card. And I love the papers you chose. Because the stripes are different, it doesn't matter that they don't align, I bet you colored outside the lines when you were little too. Your friend will love it, and isn't that what counts. The people who love me always think my cards are great!!! I'm going to follow you too, I love your spunk, and can't wait to see what your up to in the days ahead.
