Impatience will be the death of me...

I committed to working on my impatience at this year's Girls' Retreat. It's not going so well. My latest card is evidence of this. Instead of being PATIENT and waiting until the scrap store opens in two hours to get some more rub-on letters, I decided to try my hand at lettering. Not so bad... but then I decide to add a rub-on. So bad. (adding the rub-on made the letters look really skinny and light. so i darkened them... or tried. The "u" was the first letter to get slightly messed up and it all went downhill from there.)

I'm going to learn my lesson one day.

Apologies for my artsy kick - it'll be over soon I'm sure. I'll get too impatient.

Pictures 1 and 2 are before I ruined the card. Picture 3 is the back of the card. Picture 4 is the product of my impatience. (and yes, it looks worse in person.)

As I try not to be too negative, I definitely see this as a learning experience. I will attempt this card again today. Hopefully this time I'll be at least a LITTLE more patient. Heh...

Patience is very important.

I honestly don't see a problem with the card you made. But, I'm no expert designer either :)
