Hello! Today is another SNEAK PEEK into the Sweet 'n Sassy sets. I used the JESUS IS BORN set that will be released October 1 and is one of my designs! When you are done, be sure to go to Faith's blog for another Sneak Peek!
I have to say, if you look closely at this card you will see more mistakes than I wanted. BUT I posted this to show you that most people will NOT notice your mistakes on your projects unless you tell them that they are there! :)
Let's see if you can figure out the mistakes! Tell me what the mistakes are and I will put your name in a drawing for an assortment of eyelets! I will hold the drawing on Tuesday, September 30 and announce it Tuesday evening at the RELEASE PARTY and on my blog along with my list of mistakes! :) Your hint is I can see 5 mistakes on this card while picking it apart in my minds eye.
A few things about this card... These colors are WAY out of my "normal" colro choices. I think I may have used Perfect Plum only once or twice in the past year. The other thing about this card is I used Courtney's Tuesday Challenge for my card.
By the way - Do NOT feel bad! I am sharing this card for you to "pick" apart because it goes to show you that ONLY when you look VERY closely will you notice mistakes! We tend to be our own worse critics and do not share or send our work that is perfectly fine because there is something we do not like about it! Just because there may be a mistake does not diminish the love you put into making the card, the sentiment you put inside of it or even the fact that someone else will notice it!!! :)

Markie's Mom said...

Lovely colors! I love it!

Julia Aston said...

ok, first I think this is a lovely card - wonderful stamps and pretty colors - but here goes with possible woops' on this card.
1) one of the scallops on the framing is not the same size as the others, 2) the right dew drop is not lined up, 3) the purple strip appears to be angled down a little (left to right) 4) the sentiment is tilted a little 5) your panels are attached a little cooked on the card base.

I feel so badly listing these things and only noticed when I enlarged the view - and since you said there were 5 things I really looked closely!!

Christi said...

First off, this is gorgeous!! As far as flaws, I didn't notice any until you said there were some so here's what I see: the eyelets are crooked, one of the pieces of cord is crooked, and some of the doodling around the scallop is messed up. But I had to look REALLY hard to find these flaws. You did great sweetie!!

Kathy W said...

there are no mistakes in stamping, just chances for embellishments.

Wendy said...

I love that card and your stamp set! The colors are perfect for the sentiment!

Julz said...

You are so right Chrissy! So many times, I do not post something I don't feel it passes the "perfect thing" list! LOL

I had a really hard time finding the errors.

1. purple strip is slanted.
2. scallop frame is cut unevenly
3. purple dew drop not in line with the others.
4. sentiment is slanted.
5. purple underlayer is off center
