From my do not show anyone basket

Hi,

I am sure you all have made a card or two that you just are not happy with and tossed it in the never show to anyone basket...am I right? I am one that is very hesitant on sharing a card if I am not at all happy with it. I have mentioned in the past couple of weeks that I was re-organizing my crafting corner and went through that do not show to anyone basket. Today I am taking the plunge today and sharing one of those cards...please be kind! Hee hee!I just loved the look of this Spellbinders Foliage Frame and when I bought it I couldn't wait to use it. Well after making this card I have not used this frame since! Don't get me wrong, I still love the frame and I love Gina's Tropical Flowers stamp set but am not lovin' this card. I can't even tell you why! LOL! How sad is that?!! Maybe it's because the card turned out nothing like I wanted it to and I am discouraged by that.
Before stamping the flowers and leaves, I colored the stamps with Memento Markers and then stamped on Gina K's Layering Weight White Pure Luxury paper. The rest of the CS is Chocolate Kiss and the peach colored is from the first Stamp TV Stamp kit.
Sparkle fibers are glued to the center of the flowers. I found this at a local craft store. It comes in a few different colors.
I finished off the card with a couple punched swirl flourishes and rhinestones.
Now that I have taken the plunge and share a card I never thought I would, I challenge any of you to share a card that is in your "do not show to anyone" basket. Maybe we are our worst critic and we should be brave, share these projects and let our crafting friends be the critics. What do you think?

Thank you for stopping by today!
Hugs,

I love the frame you've used Sharri! It's a pretty card too if I changed anything I would take away the swirls - don't think I'd change anything else. Hope you don't mind an opinion!!! I have one card that I've kept but never shown, most of my yuk cards get thrown!!! I'll hunt it out and blog it. Thanks for letting me know I'm not alone!!!

Lol...I expected a really UGLY card! This is beautiful! I can't imagine why you wouldn't want to show it to us! Anyone on the receiving end would be thrilled to get it! Great card!

Sharri,Sharri,Sharri! We all have those cards and we are our own worst critics! Your card is beautiful!I love the way you did the flowers!

Sharri I think this is very pretty. I love that frame and the way you stamped the flowers goes very well with it. I think we all have these cards, and I have posted some of them. I do think our disappointment is when the card doesn't come out the way we planned. I have never seen one of your cards I didn't love.

The card is beautiful Sharri! I think we all have those cards that just do not turn out how we would like them to, but hey ----- a second peek and maybe it isn't so bad after all. And this card defiitely qualifies. If you REALLY don't think you will ever use that frame again, send it my way! LOL! Or better yet, put it in your prize basket!!!!
