Happy Birthday to Me!

So, March is the month of my birthday and in celebration I issued a challenge over at the HCCC to celebrate. Here's a look at the card I submitted for the challenge.

I had a lot of fun working with the 3" x 6" card size. Think I'm going to start using this size a little more often. The flowers in the lower right-hand corner of the card are embossed in dark green, the butterfly is done using two-step stamping, and the flight path of the butterfly is enhanced with some green "bling". I'm quite happy with the end result.

Love/Hate Relationship

The card I am posting today is a thank-you card I made for my sister-in-law's Bridal shower. I have a love/hate relationship with this card. Most of the time, when I look at it, I hate it. Crazy colours, too wild and busy. Blah!

The other half of the time, I love this card. I think it's genius! I love how the green and the purple tie-in with the colours on the patterned paper. And I love how the circles punched out on the purple cardstock match the circles on the patterned paper.

What I really want to know, is what do you think? Do you hate it, love it, or are you indifferent to it?
