If At First You Don't Succeed...

Reminder:  check here to see if you were my blog candy winner!

This weekend I was working on the Viva La Verve sketch challenges.  My first card was this one...while it is okay, I just wasn't thrilled with it.  
And here was my second try a day later...I'm entering this both over at the Viva La Verve Challenge and at the Moxie Fab Felt Challenge.  I like this one a ton better.  The Verve loopy flower cuts the felt so smoothly and I love the sentiment from the Verve Words of Wisdom set.

Hi Lynn
They are both great but I agree the second is the best. And I love the words on this cardagain these really make you reflect. I like the felt flowers-something else I need to try

Oooo...like 'em both. The scalloped ribbon is a nice touch on the first card and I like the funky feel on the second card.

Both are so pretty, but I do love the misted background on the second one! The loopy flowers are super cute, too!

Congrats on your ColourQ win!

That spritzing is scrumptious! LOVE it to pieces! And the colors on your first take are so rich. They ooze elegance!

I love the spray mist! I've done that technique lots on layouts, but never on cards... you've inspired me to try something new!
