Delusions of Grandeur
Have you ever watched a video by Jennifer McGuire and thought, "Hey! That doesn't look so hard! I could do that!"?
And then you can't.
Jennifer inspires delusions of grandeur in me, and today's card proves that even when you're not as grand as you think you might be, you can still be grand enough.
Okay, so this card is NOT like the ones in Jennifer's video here. In fact, it's not even a tiny bit close. But that's okay. Because my failed effort at being Jennifer led to a successful effort to be myself.
This watercolor flower was made using Peerless watercolors with white embossing (another Jennifer video), and I thought I could make an in-and-out card using that but no, no, nopity, nope.
As I sat amidst the tattered remains of my delusions, I realized that this lovely little die cut would serve on a totally different card.
So here it is, redeemed by a different purpose.
There's a metaphor for life in this somewhere, but I'm too tired to figure it out.
Mercy, grace, peace, and love for all,
