I think your card is a "keeper"! It will certainly brighten someone's day. Don't sweat the small stuff.


I kind of like that stitching......don't toss it. I'm sure it will make someone's day brighter!


I really like this card. The girl is adorable and you always do such an awesome job on coloring and shading your work..Mine never seem to turn out like that. Guess I am still learning! Thanks for sharing your work it is great inspiration.

I think its really cute..
It certainly wouldnt end up in my trash bin that for sure. The colors are so cheerful!


You are much too hard on yourself! I love this card! If you want to toss her toss her to me cause I just love her!


Oh no! Don't trash it! I don't think the stitching is bad at all....Love this card....so bright and cheery!


I agree with the other posters. I think we are our own worst critics.
Love the colours and love the oval. Thanks for the technique.


You know what, I think if you'd made the stitching in some colors, like the accent colors in the rest of the image (green, glue, orange) it might work a bit better. The thread is a bit fat (aren't we all..) but I think its the bright white that makes it look like butcher's string or something. See if you can color them with your wonderful markers, if that tones it down a bit. Great card though! I LOVE that orange.


uhmm, that's Blue, not glue LOL....


yellow yellow blue on right, brown yellow green on the left

I love the fun, bright colors...and your coloring looks amazing!! The stitching is unique and specil, even though you don't care for it.


Can you change the image to a nurse because it would be so cute for someone who has just had stitches. Never toss it all away-salvage and recycle.


If you really, really hate those stitches..you could cut the stitching off and use brads or eyelets in its place...just a thought.

I love the bright colors you used and I wouldnt toss the card.

It's funny that the one thing you think is the yuckiest is the one thing that really draws my eye to it. I really like that detail about it & think that is what makes it a keeper. Funny, huh?


The stitching kind of reminds me of a Corset for some reason, but I like the card so don't trash it because it's a keeper! The colors are great and you can't go wrong with a Bella.


Great card! Here's a simple suggestion that might make it more to your liking -- take some of the same cording, thread it under the stitches, pull it together, and tie a bow. Whatever -- just don't "chuck it."

Finally, a spare moment to comment! *wink* I think ALL of your creations are spectacular... NOT to mention that I want to color like Asela when I grow-up! *smile* What "you've" pointed out makes me think of Blondie & Dagwood comics... with the three lil' hairs on either side of Dagwood's head? *wink* HOWEVER... I love it and your just the bestest my friend!

Your correct... our "A" personalities have a tendency to make us critical of ourselves... thanks for the wonderful comment on my "spida yo-yo" Still not happy with my choices! LOL...
