Do Not Give Up

Good Morning! I can't believe the weekend is already upon us. The days just have flown by. I did get a few hours to play yesterday. Well, maybe more then a few. (smile)
I was able play and get familiar with some new techniques and with some new products. I'm really trying to stretch my creativity. Hopefully, I'll be sharing some "new" things in the future.
Today's card is being posted in two challenges, DS no.167 and Word Art Wednesday

I rounded all the corners of my card, but I'm not that happy with it. I really feel sticking to Jen's sketch would have been the better way to go. Oh well, create and learn.

Speaking of the rounded corner. I have found that when working with the Punch Corner by Project Life,  turning the punch upside down and centering it worked better for me. I never was able to get a clean rounded corner by using the guide.
Although the color can't be seen in this photo, the Pistachio Pudding used for the leaves and center of the flower was picked up out of the small dots paper. I hesitated to use it, but a darker green was just not working.
That's about it for today.  Thanks for stopping by. I hope you have a wonderful weekend and are able to do something CRAFTY my friends!
Hugs, Bernadette
Stamp: Scripture2-Verve
