we only want to show and share our very best work to our peer and love ones.
well, not me, no sirree.....
I am not shy about sharing failures.
It all started with the Altenew Radial Cover Die for this card.
Previously I had used the spray mist over the cover die on Bristol paper.
I thought it belongs to the garbage bin.
I let it sit for a while and didn't think much of it.
Then the idea of the Flowing Butterfly Stencil came to the rescue!
I decided to go for a silver metallic look.
For a change, instead of using white card stock, I used vellum for the entire card.
I did ahere a piece of white card stock inside, so it is still easy to write messages.
If you follow my blog for a while, you know that I am not shy in sharing my trials and error.
By sharing the "errors", I hope to improve and continue to grow.
AND that is why you should join my "Show & Share"!!
With the challenge, it prompts you to create and do better!
I am happy how I turned some "nearly-trashed" scraps into something decent.
I hope that you enjoy seeing posts like this and feeling a little inspired....

Thanks so much for stopping by!
love your "fail" :P
Glad you didn't trash it! :)
What a difference a stencil and some silver metallic texture paste makes! That butterfly is so delicate and "makes" the card. Glad the hearts were saved!
Excellent 'save'................... I appreciate your honesty that not every card is a winner; so we must find a way to save a card.
That piece made a great background for the butterfly!
I love that this was a reject and that you made it into a beautiful Virginia card...and it is, most definitely, beautiful.
This turned out fabulous!
Love the butterfly, Thanks for the chance to win.
I love all the textures of this! My messy looks a lot worse for sure! I tend to cut mine up and use it another way! I never throw it completely out for sure. It is all in being creative, right?
Somehow, I can't even begin to think of this as a fail! I am amazed at how pretty this card is. So glad you shared and didn't toss.
