BCG Wk 41 Friendship Blooms




I started this card yesterday and didn't quite finish it. This morning I got up and just didn't like what I had done but after trying a few other things I decided it was just going to have to do for this weeks challenge. For some reason I wasn't to thrilled with the way this card turned out and in fact I told my mom I thought it was ("ugly"). She assured me it wasn't but I'm still not convinced.

The layout was pretty cool even though it was out of my normal comfort zone. So what do you think?

Stamp Set: Friendship Blooms (Sale-a-bration)
