Imperfect card

Have you ever wanted to make a card for someone special and want it to be just right because they are so special? So how come you can never get it right?

I am really rubbish and only ever make 1 xmas card - and thats for my best friend ever Emma. We have only known each other a year but seriously I dont know what I would do without her.

i wanted her card to be special - and she is an amazing crafter so the pressure was on!!

I already knew what I was going to make as i had a kit so was sorted.

I settled down to make it, emptied the kit onto the table and BUGGER! the kit was totally different to what I thought it was and nothing matched!!!

TOTAL NIGHTMARE!!! I was not happy as my great idea was spannered and I dont have huge amounts of cardmaking stuff any more so was very stressed.

I eventually come up with this idea... wasnt want I wanted but the best I could do with what I had :( ...

Please excuse the rubbish pictures but its 2 am! Its actually a xmas red and Kraft coloured

Patterned paper, die cut bird waste, paper flowers from Craftwork Cards
Glitter Glue and Gemstones from Crafty Boots
Lace from my stash.
