You see, Picasa was just the final frustration with this card.
Here is the card that I referred to yesterday: the formerly one-layer card on which I stamped the sentiment badly. I pressed too hard on the stamp and the lines got all wonky-looking. I stamped it again (notice how neatly!) on a scrap and cut it out to cover up the mistake.
Yay, Susan! You saved the day!
Then I thought, golly, wouldn't it be cool to round the upper right and lower left corners of the sentiment panel, where the leaves aren't?
Yep. Do that, Susan! It'll look so, like, you know, RADICAL!
Then, I thought, hey, wait a minute! Wouldn't a butterfly look great here? It would add a touch of interest to an otherwise semi-boring card.
Oooooh, YES! Do that, Susan. You are undeniably a genius!
So I punched some butterflies in blush blossom, but the color didn't quite work with the VersaColor cinnamon. I tried stamping a polka dot background and punching out a butterfly from it, but that looked totally weird. I finally beat a safe retreat to white with olive gems. Well, I could live with it, even if it's not completely perfect.
Maybe you're still a genius. Even Leonardo da Vinci screwed up every now and then.*
Then I put dimensionals on the sentiment panel, adhered it to the card, glued down the butterfly, added the rhinestones, and propped the card up to admire it.
Susan, you're an idiot!
Do you see the problem? Where, oh where, are the two rounded corners? Grrr. That darn butterfly totally distracted me from my plan for the corners. Papercrafting ADD, that's what I have. And now I'm so disgusted with the whole card, I'm not even going to bother trying to make it again....
Because I just couldn't bear it if the rounded corners didn't save this card and elevate it to the status of something worthy of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. (*snort*)
Especially because there's no chance rounded corners would elevate this card since the butterfly almost covers the upper right corner, so what's the point anyway? (*big snort*)
Especially particularly because giving up and starting anew is sometimes absolutely the right thing to do when things go sideways.
*Although Leo certainly wouldn't have posted the results of his less-than-genius creations on the internet for comic effect. Leave that desire to spread joy and laughter to me. Now, go make something and love it, even if it goes sideways!
