      Today I have this card to share:

      cardm_zps2e5e0ab4.jpg

      And well…. I can assure you that there were many times, during the creative process, that I thought: You should have left it alone!!!!! But…. we here at Swirlydoos…. we just can't stop adding right? So that is exactly what I did, and I'm not too unhappy with it.

      0m_zps2d900955.jpg
      For the base of my card I folded an A4 piece of cardstock double and drew a circle, which at the top, is a little overlapping to create a double round card.

      1m_zps38eedef7.jpg
      Then I drew another circle (same size as the base card) on PP and cut it out.

      2m_zps2ce01922.jpg
      I distressed the edges and glued it onto my opened card base. I find that when you open up your card, you can align it better. Especially helpful with a stripe designed paper.

      3m_zps0b83be73.jpg
      I cut a piece of PP at 4.1/2 x 3.1/4 for my first layer and rounded the coers.

      4m_zps21873c7d.jpg
      Then, and excuse me for this tag being teared, I cut a tag at 2.1/4 x 3
      (that is what you get if you want to use your scrap)

      5m_zps4e2a7648.jpg
      And I placed both pieces like in the picture.

      6m_zpsbd2a9bcb.jpg
      Then I cut another tag from that beautiful rose PP at 5.1/4 x 2.3/8. I distressed and inked the edges.

      7m_zpsa1b3b1ce.jpg
      I glued it to the center piece but did raise it a litlle, by using a piece of the box, the kit came in. I also teared, it looks like a letter M to me, from an old book page.

      8m_zps0afceb50.jpg
      I glued it on top of the frist little tag.

      9m_zpsb16b4c8b.jpg
      Then I cut a little strip at 2.1/2 x 5/8. This will be a mat for my (from the barcode strip) cut out sentiment *friendship*

      10m_zpsa2a45745.jpg
      Both pieces got their edges distressed and inked

      11m_zps4403b6aa.jpg
      And I glued them to the rose tag like this.

      12m_zpsffcdfa56.jpg
      Then I took out a little mesh and placed it over my center. (I made this picture a little darker, for you to see the mesh better)

      13m_zps9e77c041.jpg
      I die cutted some flowers (I used the Spellbinder rose die)

      14m_zps54dca161.jpg
      Shaped the edges and tued it into a flower.

      16m_zps7d8c71e9.jpg
      I placed my flower on top of the book-page tag and added some bling which came in the kit and 2 handmade leaves.

      17m_zps7f0ac176.jpg
      Then I added a little strip of burlap.

      18m_zpscf81c762.jpg
      I added some structure paste. (And here's where I thought: I should have left it alone)

      cardm_zps2e5e0ab4.jpg
      Because I wanted to add a few mists, but sadly I grapped the wrong bottle and urgh… It tued out a dark blue instead of a lighter teal. So I added some gold mist and some Papersoft and eventually after everything was dry, I added some inka gold.

      closeup1m_zps0b217d66.jpg
      To finish it off, I glued a resin

      closeup2m_zps4631f189.jpg
      and some pearl strand.

      SO lea from my mistake and put the bottles of mists you want to use in front of you, to make sure that you will NOT grab the wrong color mist.

      I hope you like it anyway.

        Paulien, I love it! Sometimes mistakes make it even better. I was admiring the gold and dark shading in the coer before I read that it was a mistake. Thanks for the great tutorial.

                      Your little accident really makes the card, Paulien! It looks awesome!!

                      "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
