Great Challenge...My Not So Great Card!

This week's Blogger's Challenge is to create a birthday card. A great challenge because we always need an extra birthday card or two. Right? But, I'm just not in love with my card. Normally, I don't post the creations that I'm not really happy with for all of Blog Land to see, but I've got a headache right now and this is the best that I can come up with. My only consolation is that this card will be for a little boy's upcoming birthday party and chances are it will end up getting thrown out...lol! I love the image (Stampendous) and the striped, sparkly paper (Debbie Mumm's Baby Boy) and all of the colors, but for some reason, I'm just not in love with this creation. I'm sure some of you out there can relate. Right? Maybe it's the headache talking...lol!

The other details include a Photo Corner and Oval Punches, some Making Memories brads, a couple rows of Faux Sewing, a Papertrey Ink sentiment, and quite a bit of Star Dust Stickles. Please be sure to click on the Blogger's Challenge logo in my right sidebar for more Birthday card inspiration. Maybe I'll have the chance to give this challenge another try over the weekend! Thanks so much for stopping by...Toodles! :D

We are our own worst critics sometimes! I've had many a card when I dread posting it for the same reasons you are saying. I think it turned out great!
