My disaster card.....

Have you ever had one of those days where nothing goes right?? I've had one!
Started this card added the 3D the flowers and mounted in onto Nesties, popped it down on my desk but didn't realize that the back of the image had silicone on it and of course it stuck to a white frame which I had punched out ready to use on another project! Decided to leave it rather than throwing the whole lot in the bin, looks a bit strange I know.
Added some SU backing papers, stamped my sentiment added some cuttblebug corners and a bit of ribbon and some trellis, then thought 'oh' instead of wasting a little scraps of paper I would make some faux brads. Thinking I had finished off my card popped it down and promtly my bottle of glue fell onto my card.....'Oh blow' I said or words to that effect! Silicone all over the corner of my card, so then had to hunt out an embellishment that would cover my distaster....hence my butterfly charm. Why do I still use silicone? Silicone and I just dont mix.....Think I will pack up today and go and have a nice cup of tea....

When I met up with my friend Val this week we usualyl meet at our local craft shop and they had some lovely Kanban die cut images of Art Deco ladies so it would have been rude of me not to put something in my basket...hee...hee
