Globecraft Memories Presents Kathy’s Lily Pond Palette Challenge

My goodness it has been such a long time since I've posted.  I really didn't mean to be away for so long but life has just been crazy.  It's finally turning into summer here in North Dakota and I can tell you I've been waiting to sit outside with an icy beer....ah doesn't it sound amazing?  I am also currently looking to move to a larger home right now a two bedroom apartment is feeling a bit cramped and stale.  Hopefully I'll get my ducks in a row soon and my boyfriend and I will be off to our dream house.

Now for the good stuff.  I made this card to compete in the Lily Pad Cards Globecraft Memories Presents Kathy’s Lily Pond Palette Challenge.  I really liked how it turned out but when my boyfriend saw it he had a completely different opinion about it.  I'll share below :)

So here I am all proud that I created that bottom scallop using Make-the-Cut, and I was all excited that I was going to get to use it on a card.  I thought it was so lovely and in walks my boyfriend.....he goes so that's for someone who is in the hospital due to heart attack or something morbid along those lines and I said "don't you see the sentiment it is a birthday card!"  Then he goes "well I saw the heart and the thing at the bottom there looks like the heart monitor thing so I thought it was a get well card."  Oh boys! (insert eye-roll here:) )  Needless to say I'm a bit self conscious about it but, I still like it so I hope you will to.  Enjoy!
