The Joy of Spring

Today I went a little mixed media style to create a challenge card.  I'm not really comfortable with mixed media because it involves a certain amount of imperfection...like it needs imperfection and/or "forgiveness" of imperfection to evolve properly.  I am a perfectionist and if truth be told I am never totally happy with my work.  It is what drives me to improve...I am never "there".  I enjoy picking apart my own cards.  My daughter thinks it's hilarious.  Every time she sees a card that I've made she asks me what I disapprove of on this one :)  Every card I make is an opportunity for me to learn.
