My card making is very hit 'n' miss ,I haven't found a style that seems to be me. Sometimes you can look at batch of cards and know who made them,it's called being consistent and as long as they are consistently good then you will win.
In June I managed to win two challenges ,one at Little C's the other at 365 Cards along with a couple of top 3 or 4 spots.Yesterday I was lucky and won the June challenge at Christmas Cards All Year Round with my 5 Bird cards.
Is there a point to this post, YES.Don't let the horrible cards you've made stop you from being creative. Hang in there and like me you might have the odd win.
Get crafting and have a good day.
