'Happy Birthday' Card x3

I get inspiration for my cards from lots of different places, 
but Andrea Walford's style has always caught my attention.  
She makes cards that are clean and beautiful, 
and I've cased many of her creations.

Usually I'm happy with what I make when it's patterned after one of her cards, 
but that wasn't the case with this one. (Sorry, I couldn't find her card to link to!)  

After making card #1, I just wasn't happy with it and thought it needed something else.

So I tried again.  And I really wasn't happy with this one!  
If I had it to do all over, I wouldn't have added the 'birthday' sentiment like I did...
or the patterned paper behind the sentiment!

That brings me to card #3.  I added a circle behind the sentiment, 
and was mostly happy with it this time.

I think if I had it to do all over again, I would've just 
added some rhinestones to card #1.  Maybe I'll try again another day!

What about you?  
Do you ever have days when you're just not happy with what you make?

Paper: 'Dream Come True' (Leeza Gibbons "Wishes & Dreams")
Stamps: 'Happy Everything' (Stampin' Up!)
