Mistakes were made, others will be blamed...

I read a book with that title  couple of years ago that was really good. It reminds me of this card because I am going to blame other external forces for the way this card came This was my first time using the Memento Cantaloupe. I've seen others use it and it looks awesome, but I think I was a little heavy handed with it. My panel Bella looks more like a Dirty psychic girl..ha ha! I also messed up the little fillable frames 4 panel at the bottom, but it's not too bad. The major faux pas was that my marker went rolling across the table and right onto the card AFTER it was made. Obviously, I was not using a Copic. Ugh! I had to do something so that's why there is a row of buttons...just out of nowhere. Then I realized that I left my camera on all night, and have no more batteries that size so I had to take the picture with my iPhone so it's blurry...UGH!!! Some days just aren't my day! I like it well enough, though.

I made this with the Mojo Monday sketch in mind. I really enjoy the sketches they have because every week they really do challenge me to think out of my norm. Have a great night!

Well despite the travails in making this card I think it turned out cute Keva! I rather like that row of buttons across the bottom, looks to me like it was meant to be there ;) If anyone ever took my cards apart and saw all the mistakes that I'd covered up they'd be appalled lol!

Very cute - I love the sentiment. Great card too - the buttons add a nice touch.
