I don't know about this one



what do you think?  I really don't think I like this one.  Maybe it is not my style, but then again what is my style, I really don't think I have a particular style do I?
The card is 4 x 9 inches and fit in a business size envelope.  I made it following this sketch from Card Maps
                                           
I love the sketch and was trying to do something using my Cricut/Imagine.  All the papers and the flower image were cut using the Better Together Imagine cartridge.  The flower I cut into three pieces to follow the sketch but it is hard to see that.  I put blue Stickles all over the flower then covered it with Glossy Accents, I think I should have skipped the Stickles as you really can't see it anyways.
You can see the cuts better in this picture.  I also pop dotted three layers on the flower.  I like the colors and the papers but just don't think I like this card.  I probably would not have even posted it if I had something else to post.  LOL

So a question I have, so you think I have a style of card making if so what would you call it?
Well thanks for stopping by and leave me a comment to convince me I should like this card or what I can do to make it look better.

I would guess it's just not your style because it's nothing with the card!!! It's really very pretty! I like it!

I feel the same way about some of my projects too, so I do understand!!! But that's a great card!

I love it! I really love how you added the button in the center of the flower. Everything fits perfectly on the shape you started with. It's a bloomin' masterpiece! Just look at it this way... you stepped out of your comfort zone and SCORED!!!

Donna, I know how you feel. Sometimes, I work so hard on a card and when I finish, I just don't like it. But when I post it, I get good comments. I do like the card. Love the colors.

Donna sometimes I think we all are a little hard on ourselves . I loved the card because of the colour combinations and the embellishing of the flower .
