Our Creative Corner / Color Throwdown #192

"Practice makes perfect." You will probably be wondering what that saying has to do with my post. Well, what I noticed today is how confident I feel creating cards. To me it is a big accomplishment. I participated in different challenges and won some but that doesn't mean that I felt confident about myself. They are two different things, and the confidence that someone can acquire is because you stay concentrated and focused on what you are doing. Besides, being constant helps me a lot. Maybe this is very common knowledge for you but for me it was a discovery, because one thing is to say it and another is to feel it. At this moment I FEEL confident, and it is amazing how everything flows in the way it has to be, only because of practice, confidence, consistency, and love in everything I do. I want to take this moment to thank all of you for following and keeping me creating to inspire you. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I combined two challenges this time, Our Creative Corner and Color Throwdown #192. For Our Creative Corner there is a sketch to follow which I combined with the colors of Color Throwdown. Hope you like it! Sorry but for picture reason you can't probably see the correct color of the bow which is Melon Mambo.

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day full of inspiration!

"La práctica te hace perfecto". Probablemente te estarás preguntando que tiene que ver ese dicho con esta publicación. Pues bien,  lo que he notado hoy es cuán confiada y segura me siento para hacer tarjetas. Para mí eso es un gran logro. He participado en varios challenges y he ganado algunos pero eso no significa que me haya sentido segura de mí misma. Esas son dos cosas diferentes, y la confianza en uno mismo se adquiere cuando tu estas enfocado y concentrado en lo que estas haciendo. Además, ser constante me ayuda mucho. Puede ser que esto sea algo común para ti, pero para mí ha sido un descubrimiento, porque una cosa es decirlo y otra es sentirlo, y yo en este momento SIENTO esa confianza en mí misma. Es asombroso como todo surge en la forma que tiene que ser, solo debido a la práctica, confianza, consistencia, y amor a lo que hago. Quiero aprovechar este momento para agradecer a todos  ustedes que me siguen, por mantenerme creando para inspirarlos. Gracias, gracias, gracias!!

He combinado dos challenges esta vez, Our Creative Corner y Color Throwdown #192. Para Our Creative Corner hay un sketch que seguir el cual he combinado con los colores de Color Throwdown. Espero que les guste. Disculpen pero por razones de la foto no pueden ver el color correcto del lazo el cual es Melon Mambo. 

Gracias por visitarme! y que tengan un hermoso día lleno de inspiración!

  1. Hello Lilli
    I agree 100% with you that 'Practice does make Perfect', and like you confidence levels sway from week to week, and I can categorically say that your confidence level should be right up the top today as your card is just gorgeous.
    Not only have you interpreted the Sketch perfectly, you have designed it so well with your elements, your arrangement of the colours is also pleasing to the eye.
    Thank you so very much for joining us this week at Our Creative Corner, we are thrilled to see your work.

  2. Very pretty card! Thanks for joining us for the Color Throwdown!

  3. Great use of the colors - I'd love for you to link up with me at 52 Card Pickup this week!

  4. I have to agree with Sue, this is so pretty! Keep your confidence up - some of my least favorite cards have been published by magazines, go figure! Thanks or joining us in our corner of the 'blogosphere' at the OCC!

  5. Wow...this is such a gorgeous card. Love the beautiful butterflies and cute ribbon. Thank you for sharing with us at Our Creative Corner.

  6. Just gorgeous, Lili! I really like the trio of butterflies and the fun mix of colors. That ribbon is one of my favorites, too....anything Melon Mambo is, really. So glad you joined us this week at Our Creative Corner! Have a great day! :)
