It will Never Be Noticed on a Galloping Horse

This is something my Great Grandmother always used to say (among other nuggets of wisdom) and it's meant to be used when something is not quite perfect but you don't want to work to fix it.
I made this card today for Beate's sketch challenge, which I glanced at and ran off to stamp, without paying much attention to the layout. I really didn't do it right, and at the end I realized I needed to add the 3 embellishments on the left side. So I cut the prongs off some brads and glued them on with Diamond Glaze (aka Crystal Effects). Thus "It'll never be noticed on a galloping horse!" LOL

Oh, this is just beautiful. Love the papertrey flowers and the colors, and the wingless brads. I made a couple cards with Beate's sketch, but they are still living in my camera. Hopefully I'll get them out sometime this weekend. :)

I think you did an awesome job! I never would have known that the two other brads were added later!
