Isn't always a bad sign...
I have been feeling really down recently with my creations, even thought about selling all my stash. I have decided to take a couple of weeks out to find the bug again, just take the pressure away and find the 'inner crafter' again.
Last night I decided to go through the DP's I have on the computer and started playing around with a few, just shrinking the design and repeating it across the page, just cause well... no reason at all really! Anyway, I purchased some lovely papers from Sassy Designs last week (They have a sale!!) one of the sets I purchased was the Absinthe Digital Paper Pack (I got the solids too!). So I shrunk the design down and decided to print... and WHAM.... the ink went half was though printing, it went from the lovely deep colours, to washed out browns... I cried, at that point I could have thrown it all out!
But I walked away and I thought, and I remembered the digs that I brought from Tiddly Inks... Now they have been following me for ages, not something that I would normally colour but these we shouting 'Buy me, Buy me' and so I did.... and then this fell together...
Yes it all just fell into place, including the paper that I was printing. I couldn't believe it when I looked at it this morning....
Everything looked so good, so nice and as I want all my cards to look.
I have had to sit and admire for a while before I have been able to post this.... just realising that I put far too much pressure on myself sometimes, I am still taking a break and if the creativity flows... well so be it, I'm not going to push myself. Ok so a bit more info on the card for you!

I didn't know what occasion to make this card for, so I have added a small sentiment to the inside of the card from Stampin Up, it says 'Wishing You Love and Laughter forever after' (I would have decorated the inside but no guarantee that the paper will turn out the same!). I will be adding this card to my Facebook page under the category or 'Love, Engagement and Wedding'.
