Taylor's Sketch challenge

Hello! I hope you all had a great weekend! I made this card yesterday for Taylor's Cupcake Sketch challenge. This is such a fun sketch. I'm not really loving my card though, but I don't have anything else to share right now, so I thought I'd post it anyway lol. Normally when I'm not happy with something, I'll stay at it until I am, but this one was about to end up in the trash if I kept messing with it. I was getting mad, lol. I stared off with the SU scallop circle and Boho Backgrounds, but it looked too small, so I went with this. I must have cut out 15 circles and colored that darn dog at least 5 times. It was always something. Either my ink was running out of the lines, or I stamped the sentiment too hard, or I got a lopsided looking circle. Ugh!As you can tell, my circle cutter sucks, lol. It kind of weaves in and out sometimes. It's not quite as crooked as it looks in this picture though. I'm not even going to tell you how long I spent on this card wink.

Well, I better go clean up a little bit. My stamp room needs some cleaning too. I haven't put anything away in a while, so I'm really running out of table space, lol. Hopefully I'll have some time to stamp and visit your blogs later. I am so behind in my Google Reader again rolleyes.

Hope you all have a fab day!!

Cute card Emily! Maybe one of these days I'll have some of those Copic Markers to play with. I think your circles look fine.
This is a very busy time of year for all of us. I'm not having as much time to play as I would like either. We will all be back on track soon.

Clean up - now you're going to make me feel bad. My room is a mess.
