Punch Challenge

I've been feeling like my mojo in non-existent and that all I've been making is the same old stuff. When I commiserated with friends about it on Facebook, my friend (and Stampin' Up enabler) Meranda suggested a challenge to make a card front using our punches.

I love the first card but can't take any credit whatsoever for the creation. I cased a card off of Pinterest that had inspired me a while back. I'm kinda so-so about the second card. I had a completely different look going on for it only to scrap it and start over. You know how sometimes you think a project needs just a little something more but then when you add it you realize "oops, that was too much"?  Well that's what happened with the second card. It was way cooler before I messed it up and had to start over. I also should've learned my lesson from the first card and whole "it's too much" thing. I'm not loving the prisma glitter on the ice cream cone. Oh well. C'est la vie.

The third card I just threw together so I could use up the cute ribbon. A friend gave me some chocolates for my birthday and that ribbon was tied around them. I saved it thinking it would be perfect for a project of some sort and the card just kinda went together from there. I realized after I had it done though that the ribbon was crooked. Yep, one of those kind of crafting days. Perhaps I should consider being less of a perfectionist. LOL  Speaking of perfectionism, please forgive the spot on the 1st card...apparently I had something on my camera lens. Sigh.
