Penny Black- precision required!

Penny Black Saturday Challenge has a sketch......full of squares.......though mine has rectangles..........and is on a large A5 size card.........just as well.........because as I made it I remembered......... why I don't make anything that requires accurate cutting.......why I love Lauren Meader templates,but mine always look like a 5 year old has made them.........why I don't make inchies and twinchies and such like things.........why I have lots of torn edges and angled layers on my scrapbook pages.........because I cannot be precise.........I just don't do precision...........and I find it highly frustrating even trying...........not to mention hating the waste.

I do however quite like this card......when viewed from a distance.........so the 'unpreciseness' of it is not so noticeable!!!! And it is perfect for DD1.
The image has been watercoloured and Stickled.........the papers are SU........the card oddments from stash.........sentiment is Penny Black........ribbon from stash.........SU punch used........xmas trees punched.
Incy Wincy Designs and Cupcake Craft Challenges both want red and green, while Stamp with Fun and Creative Card Crew both want xmas.........a sure sign it must be December!!

Hi Jacky, you are so right. I tend to shy away from these designs that need a great deal of accuracy too! They always look great when others do them, including yours by the way, but I always end up making a dogs dinner of them.

Jacky,
That stamp is too cute! I love it! I would have thought you did everything precisely! LOL! Oh well, you had me fooled.
