Try and try again

I was soooooooooo totally uninspired today when I started out. Ever have one of those days? I was trying to combine things that just weren't working. But then the mojo started flowing. I'm not positive I love this card anyway, but I do like it. Ha. Actually, I am pretty happy with it. I used the Pretty Palette #10 colors of ivory/green/burgundy/navy, the Delightful Challenges (sponsored by Digital Delights) challenge to use tags, the Skipping Stones Design #77 sketch, and the Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge to make an encouragment card using a touch of silver. I started out trying to make an easel card and ended up just making a funny front panel card, but hey, it's kind of fun as you can see in the second photo. The stamps on the card front are both from "Text Objects" by Verve and the inside sentiment is from SU! "Year Round Cheer II".
