Whimsical Wednesday: Cheshire Cat

Wednesday, March 10, 2010

Good Morning again!

This is my second post for today. (If you want to know how to create those cloud backgrounds I do (ALL THE TIME!), then scroll down!)

I have another Whimsical Wednesday challenge for you again! This week's challenge is brought to us by little Jack Diedrich and I think he has been bitten by the Alice bug, just like his mum has, because today's challenge is THIS POSTER! *grinning like a Cheshire cat* ;) You can check out all the details on the Whimsical Wednesday blog and while you're there, check out what this week's fabulous featured Daredevil, Rebecca Ednie, has created for you today!

So.....this card looked a WHOLE LOT BETTER in my head than it does in real life! *grin* Does that happen to you too? I love the colors but it's definitely lacking something. I don't know what happened in the translation but man! Something went a little awry! And rather than pull out from today's challenge, I decided to show it to you so you can see that we all have off days! LOL

I combined three challenges into this one card: besides the Whimsical Wednesday Cheshire cat challenge; this week's A Sketch For You To Try for the layout and Jess's Oh Alice color challenge of blue, red and purple. Maybe this was my downfall I think! ;)

If you would like to see better examples of today's challenge, which is a fabulous one BTW, then check out what the rest of the Daredevils came up with:

I'll have to agree with Marley. I wish my cards looked this good on a bad day. You always have fabulous layers and the perfect amount of embellies.

Sandra, I don't think this card is missing a thing - it's fabulous!! But I understand, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we are our own worst critic.

Great job lady and I can't wait to get home to try your clouds.

Have a fabby day.

I can't believe you don't think this card is awesome, because it is! I really love the shading and the stars around the cat and how it looks like there's a spotlight on him! Happy Wednesday! I'm going to check out the clouds now, I HAVE to know how you do it!

I love this card. I saved it to my "Cards I Love" file faster than you can blink. I too wish my good days were as creative as your off days.

Judy McMullen said...

Wow! Terrific card, Sandra! I can't see a thing that's missing or would make it any better. Don't be so hard on yourself!
