Wednesday Stamper...Fleur De Lis card

I wanted to enter last week but couldn't come up with the right stamp...this week the theme is Fleur De Lis and I couldn't find and appropriate stamp either but got a little creative and found some card stock with Fleur De Lis image (from K&Co)...I background stamped a beautiful flourish from Crafty Secrets "Cherub"Clear art stamps in ColorBox chalk olive pastel ink...I added some fun image stickers from Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage collection "Wonderful Women" and finished off edging the card with the olive pastel ink and added some ribbon trim... Oh, I almost forgot---the inside says "Your support means everything"...Thanks for looking!

Neatness VS Creativity???

I need to put to rest a question that has plagued me since my earliest creating adventures...

Please Leave a comment below and help me answer this artful question...
Is neatness more important to you ( ie. executation, attention to detail etc.) or the creativity (color combo's, and design) of the artwork???
I would love to hear from you on this!

Thank you!!!

Just a quick note of thanks for all of you wonderful art friends who have stopped in and left comments on my blog...I wish I could respond to you personally but haven't figured a way to do that yet! I really appreciate you taking the time to look at my art and leave a note of encouragement!!! It means a lot to me :0)

I just returned from a quick trip to Seattle ( a business trip) with just my hubby...Never left all three kids before, but it worked out just fine. My DD (18 yr.) watched the boys and my wonderful neighbor even invited them over for dinner for the two nights we were away!!! I even had time to take some great photos while hubby was in a meeting! I didn't take along my digital camera, just my SLR so I will have to get them developed and scanned before I can post them...hopefully soon!
Hope you all are having an art-filled day!
hugs and blessings,
