Candy Canes, WaterMarks and Embellishments {2s4y challenge}

Ok today's post is kinda of a fun one...
It's not everyday that you get to see my mess ups, but today I thought I would share one of my "reasons for embellishments" with you. This card was done for the 2sketches4you, Laura's card sketch #65.
The first card you see was the original card. I was down to the very last two things---put the copic colored stones on the "label with the sentiment and then stick the whole piece on the card.
Things were looking pretty good and the "oh cr*p" (and it was loud too) I had a big red finger print on the left hand side of the candy canes. I thought it was copic so I rushed for the blender pen -- it helped but did not take it all away. Go ahead...click on the pic and look,it's ok that's why I posted it :)
Well, how the heck am I going to cover that up? I thought I would just take a pic and throw my watermark over it...you dont know how many times I have done this in the past! Works great unless the blemish is right smack in the middle of the card. So after much thought...we have below, the final version of this card. I actually like it better than the first card. It's different and unique!
Here is a little close up of the added embellishment for you.
Supplies:
Stamps:PTI Holiday Friendship jar Fillers
Ink: Mometo and Copics, Snow White
Misc. Label Punch(SU), crystals color with copics, PTI pure poppy ribbon.

That's funny because I just posted a card with the candy canes also and a photo of my oops with my card too! Yours turned out adorable!

I think the added embellie was the perfect touch.....even if it was to cover up an oopsie! I agree with Kara, the highlights on the candy canes are fabulous!

Love the little ribbon you added...you would never know that there was an oops there! This card is so cut, your coloring on the candy canes and leaving the "shine" on them is perfect! Great layout too! Oh, and I like that green dotted background paper too, LOL!!

Eva, super job with the candy cane coloring and with dealing with the boo-boo! Awesome! It's one of the reasons I love papercrafting...it's such a forgiving hobby!
