a happy little accident

so last night i set out to make a card for a challenge - it's a christmas in july, gift card holder that pixie dust studio is having. it's the first challenge i have ever attempted...and perhaps the last! ok, maybe not. but still, i was unsuccessful, to say the least.

i had grand ideas about creating the cutest and most clever gift card holder ever conceived. about 2 hours into this, however, it turned out my dream fizzled. i couldn't get in the groove. i gave up on that one (for now), and started to make another, regular card instead!

i used glimmer mist that Danielle at GirlRacer Scrap made (visit her here!!), and sprayed the brown cardstock with it. it gives it just a light sparkle, and I LOVE IT. the blue petals were created by just spiraling out some oval shapes. and the pink heart leaves are just a punch. i used two different pink cardstocks and glued them together. then i raised the hearts and "miss you" to give it some more added dimmension.

so even though my gift card holder was a bust, i did end up making a cute little card anyway!
