I decided to go back into my card making archives to some of my very first creations for inspiration ... because seriously, some of those first card were pretty darn ugly (thankfully the joy was in the process). I chose this card from December 2006 to inspire my *ugly* design ... green, flowers & polka dots for a winter card (what was I thinking) ... obviously I hadn't quite developed a sense of precision yet either.
I went searching at the very bottom of my designer paper scrap box and pulled out several pieces of long-neglected designer papers. I also found some monster stickers that I've had forever that also border on the *ugly* side.
I used similar rectangle patterned designs from my inspiration card to ground my monsters and added lots of sequins (since monsters talk in sequin don't you know) I and finished with some Tim Holtz Sticker sentiments that take a fun twist on the *ugly* theme.
Dig out your *uglies* from your stash and come join me.
