Bestie's birthday card

I'm SOOO mad!!!
I finished this card bar the sentiment.
I made it with Centura Pearl card.
With me so far?
I embellished it, stuck everything on foam pads etc. Then Stamped with versafine Onyx Black.
It's the blackest black EVER.....only it doesn't dry very quickly on Centura Pearl card.
I think you know where I'm going with this, don't you! *Sigh*.
Well, I wasn't about to waste all that hard work and the embellishments.
They were the only ones I had, so it was a case of peel off that blue layer 
then put it on another base card.
It was a nightmare to get off and I creased tho top half in doing so.
I nearly cried. I was LIVID!!
Once I'd re-attached it to the new base card, it looked OK though.
you could JUST see that damn crease though, so I rang Pam and explained that I hadn't actually dismembered someone else's card to make hers! LOL

Phew! That was a bit long winded, wasn't it! 
Here's the poor card I faffed up!
Shock! Horror! Not a Copic in sight!! LOL

I actually LOVE this card. I wanted something FAIRLY CAS, as that's the type Pam likes.
The cupcake dimentional sticker is from a Studio 18 pack.
The edge of the blue card was made with Spellbinder's fancy edge dies.
I framed a link of stick on pearls to match the edge.
The sentiment is from SU! (Inked this time with Memento tuxedo Black)!

Pam loved it!
 Have a super duper Sunday!

Viv that does happen and I know how you feel, you need to remember that versafine always takes a little longer to dry or take your heat gun and dry it. I do that because it is a real chirps black. You did a great job because I would never know... Love your cupcakes, the HB is real pretty scrip and love the pearls. Have a wonderful Sunday.
Hugs, Pat

Glad your card ended up turning out. I can just imagine how made you were; I'd be too. The pearls are a lovely touch.

Oh dear, we all have a few tales of our crafting disasters though don't we?! So glad you salvaged it - you can't see the crease in the photo but I'm sure it looks worse to you than anyone else and doesn't spoil your beautiful card anyway!
Big hugs, Kat x

Well here I am catching up on my commenting..... and ooooh!! Our conversation today was all about sentiments often ruining a card that we've spent ages on.... and now I realise you've been there/done that!! So glad you were able to rescue this one tho hon.... it's gorgeous and no one would have know the tale behind it!! I'm just smiling to myself at me chickening out with a tag!!

Big hugs
