So after a year of blogging, I feel comfortable enough to share...

the ugliest card on the planet!  LOL
Sometimes things just keep going from bad to worse.  Even in the card making world.  I adore squares.  Anyone who knows me, knows this.  Well I wanted to use some crackle paint.  It had dried up so I added some water and got to painting my little heart out!  When these little gems dried the were rolled up like little new leaves.  It took a lot of glue dots [4 for each square] and glossy accents to get them flat.  I was so involved getting them to stick I some how missed how ugly the card was.  Well butterflies can fix just about anything right?  So I embossed and cut and carefully attached their little bodies so their wings could still flutter.  Then I stitched their little trails.....  Well then I wrote my sister a lovely letter, threw on the ribbon and mailed it off.  I thought at least it will make her LOL when she opens it.  LOL If you too would like to take a shot at the worlds ugliest card.  Get a card, some crackle paint, a square punch, some Basic Grey paper, some brownie AC EP, a black pen and Now & Always {ippty} stamp set and throw it all together.  LOL  If you are only interested in darling cards don't use it all at the same time!  LOL
Thanks for stopping by today!

I like your card! I hope your sister gives you a great big smile for effort! The letter will make her day - they are hard to come by these days. She will probably frame both of them!
