follow your dreams

Do you ever have a card that looks better in your head than what you actually produced? Or what about the card where you planned to do one thing, but you messed up and instead of starting over, you "work with the mistake" and you should have just bagged it? That was this card. Both times. ugh. Here it is anyways:
stamp: Impress two lines, Rubber Soul school bus
ink: VersaFine onyx black, Impress lemon yellow
other: corner punch, large paperclip, Stickles Xmas red, Sparkles buttercup, Marvy marker taupe
