Sometimes Things just don't Turn Out How You Imagine

This card is an example of what I said I wasn't going to do yesterday.  I said I wasn't going to make cards just for challenges.  But as I was looking thru my lis I saw that Scrappy Moms had a challenge using Paisley and Cardz Tv had one using the card feature on a cartridge.  So I saw that Paisley had a card feature with a cut out paisley.  I figured I would back the hole with glitter, then make the layers smaller and add them on top.  However when I cut the card I saw it had a tab on the back and it was more like an envelope.  So I cut it again using my gypsy to modify it. Didn't work.  So I backed the whole with sticky tape, added glitter and the layers.  The card part looked terrible, so I cut around the paisley and added it to a  blank card that I had got on sale at Paper Source.  It turned out well, but not how I visioned.  I usually take photos in sunlight, however I took so long that it was not very sunny.  So I taped the card to a piece of paper, then taped it to a window. So that's why there is tape on top
I am just going to give the products I used because I modified everything so much I don't know the dimensions
