A bit of failure

You may wonder what I'm talking about cos I love how this ended up although the words were placed to fit the Memory Box Foliage die.
But I don't think it would work for the Friends challenge at Less is More even though this is less than I do normally. If I had made it on a square maybe I could get away with it.
I've used the Romantic Rectangle but since my card is 14.5cm tall it had to be cut down and the ribbon very conveniently hiding the fact. The butterflies are Stampin Up the tiny butterflies and the sentiment is a clear set I brought ages ago.

  27. I'm not usually at a loss for words, but the ONLY word that keeps popping through my mind as I look at this card is WOW, WOW, WOW!! I do wish my "mistakes" looked as good as yours. You'v obviously master the art of making roses from ashes (grin). I'm a big fan of white on white cards, and this one (with the touch of gray) is just breathe taking!
