A Creative Block

I am having one of those days where you have an idea, but you just can't make it work like you imagined it would. That's a Monday for ya! Well, for this card I was "going" for a cute framed picture on a wall. I am not happy with the sentiment, but I just couldn't think of anything else to do and I didn't want the throw away the cute background so I did the best I could. I think I need to add ribbon to the scalloped oval. I think I may add a few extra details and will see if it helps, or totally ruins the card. LOL. I hope all of you are having a better Monday than me.

Ok, here is my second try. I added ribbon and a bow. I think it helped alot. I hope I don't have such a tough time with my card today! Here is what I used to make this card! SU Summer Picnic DP, Photo Frame Corner Punch to make the frame, Petite Oval Nesties, SU Linen Thread, Joann's brads, SU Real Red C/S and Ink, SU Bashful Blue C/S, and GP White C/S. It is amazing what a little ribbon will do for a card! Thank you for checking out my blog!

Love this idea Veronica!! I can't wait to open up my Summer Picnic pack...You know it was my very least favorite DSP, but after seeing a zillion samples done wit it, it grew on me and now I love it:-)

I love the wall idea, Veronica! The bottom really looks like paneling! Very cute idea! I like how you tied the ribbon as well.
