I'm pretty proud of myself for actually completing this. It's nothing fancy but I think it represents a lot of "growing" for me (whoa.. getting a little philosophical here).
Here's the two things I did with this card that I never thought I'd do:
1. This card was made for a challenge*. I keep convincing myself that I'm not ready for a challenge, I can't do it. But when I saw the due date for this challenge, I knew I had to try. August 10th is like half a month away! That's plenty of time to come up with something. And whaddaya know? I've got it done already and it's only been a day.
2. Using an assortment of colours and patterns. I've always sucked at "matching" colours and patterns. For this one, I just threw caution to the wind and said, "Screw it!" and put whatever paper was within reach onto this card. Of course, there was a bit of debating going on in my head but in the end, I really tried not to care so much.
