Boo-boo Butterfly Card

Hello Everyone!

How exciting is it when someone sees a card you have created then contacts you requesting you make multiples of that same design for them.  Well, that's exactly what happened to me a few days ago when I showcased this card here on my blog as well as on FB.  And, since the order was going out of state,  I wanted to get started right away!!

As luck would have it, I made a boo-boo  . . .  
so that is the card I will share with you today!!  LOL

Inside view . . .

As soon as I received this commission, I immediately created my Ken Oliver Color Burst background panels and hung them up to dry.  THIS one of course was my favorite and thought OH HOW BEAUTIFUL will this card be!  
Then BAMM!!  My one and only mistake (on this order) was made!!

While cutting out my template pieces I cut THIS particular angle panel reverse of what I needed.  And, since I also needed to cut the 1" end piece as well as the butterfly from this same panel, this beautiful panel was rendered unusable for the design requested.
Boy I hate when I make stupid errors like that!  {sigh}
 As soon as I made the cut I knew it was wrong ... grrrrr!

and how great is it when you can turn a negative into something positive!!!

You say boo boo I say BEAUTIFUL! :) I saw the FB request, what a testament to your talent, Missy! These cards are beautiful in every little detail! Gorgeous colors and design (backwards or not) and beautiful butterflies! Like WOW! said...

I am a huge fan and I love all your cards. We all make little boo boos and I am living proof of that. Suddenly there will be a half pearl here or there or a pretty ribbon or even lace. Frankly I don't have a clue how on earth you do all you do. You have to be one very organized lady!

This one is just as beautiful, Darlene! I love your save, and I really love the "butterfly kisses" sentiment. I'm going to be looking for an all in one butterfly punch, too. Those little butterflies are just the right size. I agree, waste not want not! You're so good to take on a new order and I'm so not surprised that someone contacted you about your beautiful card.

Well your one mistake has made for a very beautiful card. The background colour is fabulous so eye popping I can see why you didn't want to waste it. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge. Hugs Mrs A.

Congrats on the order, I think that's a beautiful mistake right there!

Oh how very pretty! Sometimes those 'booboos' just are meant to be, it certainly worked out for the pretty background!
