"Un" Happy Birthday Card!
I am SO unhappy about this card! I spent about two hours getting it just the way I wanted it! I embossed the "white" cardstock (which is now yellow), chalked the embossing and tried to get the shading just the way I wanted it, got the "Happy Birthday" just perfect, used more chalk (just a hint of yellow) around the edges, and punched the side. It was just the way I wanted it....I thought. Then I got the stupid idea to use some gold glimmer mist on it to make it shiny! What a mistake! My husband bought me this glimmer mist for my birthday and I was excited to use it. I sprayed a couple of sprays into the air before I actually put it on the card just in case there were any "globs" in the sprayer. Didn't do any good! My card is a mess now! There are gold globs all over the card. Plus, with just a couple of sprays, the "white" face of the card is now yellow. It doesn't show up in the photo the way I see it. Don't get me wrong, I love yellow. It is my favorite color. I just didn't want the front of my card to be THAT yellow! I am just sick about it. I was going to give this to a friend, but not anymore! My dear husband bought be two other bottles besides this gold one. I am thinking I am going to just return them all. I think I will be depressed for a couple of minutes and then get over it and get on with another attempt at making a card! I hope all of you are having a better day than I am! Thanks for stopping by and listening to me whine. I don't do it often. :)
