Happy Harvest Wagon Card

Happy Harvest Wagon Card

Having a blast with the wagon! 
Although I'm not quite ready for Fall yet I am having a ton of fun making all these cute little fall cards with the Wagon of Wishes stamp set! The little wagon is so easy to color and fill with different things. The leaves make it a perfect fall card, don't you think?  On this card I colored the wagon and leaves with Copic Markers and then added the happy harvest sentiment with a punched out tab..... 

Can I tell you a secret?  The reason I used that punched out tab is because I tried to stamp the sentiment next to the wagon on the white card stock and I messed it up! Ahhhhhhhg! I was so mad since I spent all that time coloring the wagon and leaves so I was determined to find a way to use. Tah- dah! Enter the punched out sentiment...  What do you think? Would you have ever known if I hadn't told you? Nope. But I wanted to share that because I think that happens to everyone and I want to encourage you to be creative and fix your mistakes. Sometimes they look even better than you had originally planned. I think I really like that pop of light yellow on this card! 

Have you ever "fixed" mistakes on cards and liked them better for it?  I'd love to hear about it... just comment below!

  1. Mistakes are just happy accidents. that was the mantra of a painter on PBS (I can never remember his name when I want to use that quote.) Oftentimes "mistakes" improve a project (as yours did).

  2. Great idea. Would never have known it was there to fix a mistake. Cute card. TFS.
