From Oops to Celebration

A couple days ago I posted a card that started with an oops (I had dropped a stamp). I tend to drop stamps, a lot. Here is another drop:

I was making a card for a sketch and that drop did not fall in a good place so I set the card aside. Last weekend I pulled it out and let the drop lead me to a new design:

My drop was from a scallop border stamp. When I decided to try make something of the oops card, I figured I should start with the same stamp. I just inked up the same stamp in the same color and stamped it right over the drop – which happened to be on a diagonal.

I built up the card from there, not having any plan whatsoever!

And dang if I don’t like this card!

Thanks for taking a peek!
