Making Lemonade Out of Lemons....

Or how to fix the card you just spent 30 minutes coloring on.  This card originally looked like the two I shared yesterday- right up until I dropped an ink pad on it.  Yep, sad but true.  I couldnt let all the work go to waste so here is my fix.
P1060929
I trimmed out the flower and leaves.  Luckily the ink pad only hit the sentiment and white space.  Next I took a piece from the base (the kraft portion) because the rest of it ripped when I was peeling off the flower.  I made a new base out of plum pudding cardstock.  I stamped the panel with the sentiment and added a little bit of ribbon and bling.  Yay, a card saved after all!  Thanks for stopping by!

Beautiful "save." If you didn't tell us we would never have known :).

Great save. You know, if you hadn't said anything, the card would have stood on it's own. How heartbreaking, however, about the ink pad. I have a long list of things I have dropped ink pads on, including my shirt(s). Don't ask.
