My second attempt

Sometimes I can really drive myself crazy.  I can look something over and find every little thing wrong with it .. especially if it is something that I create.  In my last post you saw my entry for the Precious Piecings/Paper Cuts Club digi stamp challenge.  If you recall, I stated that it was not my favorite piece... and that bothered me.  Well, it bothered me so much that I decided to re-do my card.  I really don't know if I can even enter a second card, but that is not the point.  I really wanted to work on my shading.  The best way I could think of comparing my work was to simply color another bride stamp .. and why not take it to the next level and just make the card?  Well, that is exactly what I did ... and this is what you get...

This is my first card
                                
                                        This is my second card.  I really like
                                      this one much better!
This is the first card
(I hated that I grabbed that tea dye at the last minute!)



This is the second card.
Again, I like everything about this one better!

So, now I can put this challenge to bed ... and maybe myself too ... whew, I'm tired.

I'd love to know your thoughts on my cards!  Comments are great!  Thanks.
