Getting stuck...

Good Evening my dear Bloggers...

Have you ever sat and made a card or an LO, only to get stuck half way through??? And NO matter what you try to add or take away, nothing looks right??? I sat like that the night before last. I had the image coloured, the papers matched and both ready to be stuck on to my card. I was playing around with EVERYTHING in my stach, but no matter what i did, I could NOT get it looking right.. In the end i left it and went to bed..
Then last night, kids in bed, hubby making tea :-), I once again sat down at my crafting table. Looking at the card from the night before, I sighed a thought "what to do??". Once again I started to play around and within 10min of sitting down, I had the card DONE... It was really amazing.. I ended up useing the same flower I had made the night before but was'nt happy with. I love the card now, but the prosses of making it, really opened my eyes.. Sometimes, everything really DO look different after a good nights sleep...

Sorry the picture is a bit dark, it's taken quite late at night..

Things I have used:
"Roam" paper pack from K&Company, Leaf & Flower punch, Mini Roses,
"for you" stamp, digi ticket, diecut envelope, "born to shop" notelet.

Hope you all like my wee card, and THANK YOU very much for any comments
