We all have that moment when something goes wrong. You drop an inked stamp on your project, stamp something crooked, place a layer on crooked, or spill some something on your project. I'll admit I almost cried when I finished coloring in all 980 some of these tiny little circles in a rainbow pattern and then stamped the sentiment on crooked. I really wanted a simple one layer card that had some wow when you realized the detail that had gone into that main image which seems quite simple at first glance.

I knew I wasn't going to let all that work of coloring those circles go to waste! This is when you need to step back and make a new plan. When this happens I almost always end up liking the second design better. That's surely the case here. I have a photo below of my boo boo just so I'm giving full disclosure to all of you blog readers.

I'll be posting my blog give away tomorrow and since I have heard from some of you that you are unable to "follow" my blog, I'll be doing two open to everyone and the other open to only "followers".

Bird image from Memory Box, sentiment on both cards is from Stampin' Up!

Wauw! Gorgeous! Good thing you made that mistake, 'cause I actually think your second try is even more pretty, though I understand the feeling! We all have that sometimes... too bad, but the result here with you is sooo pretty!! I was now able to follow you again! Yihoe!! Love what you create!
Hugs, Wendy

I bet the air turned blue! But I think I prefer the second one too. It's an utterly stunning image Sarah! Vx

Wow - I can't believe you coloured all those dots by hand! I would have cried if I this had happened to me and probably had a temper tantrum and bawled everything up and thrown it away. Glad you didn't though - the final card is gorgeous! :)

Nice fix, I LOVE the second version!! I really like how you mounted both layers on red, makes it pop.
