Lemonade card ;)

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade ~ right!  I really like this paper and I only had one sheet.  This was all I had left from another project so, I had to conserve.  The card base is 4 1/4x5 1/2 white cardstock.  The panel is 4x3 1/4.  The reverse side is the brown on the bottom pieced, 4x1".  I took a piece of white seam binding and sprayed it with Glimmer Mist (I cannot remember which color. It was a brown.  Let me know if you need to know) and tied it on the seam in a bow.  The lemonade comes from the flower.  I used my large Tim Holtz Rosette die and cut the last strip of the paper I had.  When I glued the ends together, I did it wrong.  I have made LOTS of these rosettes so I really do know how to do it, I just blew it.  Well, I wanted to use it because I could not make another from that paper, so I made lemonade.  See the part where the leaf is setting?  It is flat and it is not supposed to be.  I took my AWESOME PTI Turning a New Leaf die and cut one that fit the best and kinda looked like a flower stem!  Voila, I salvaged my mistake!  Do you think I did?  Does it look intentional?  Would you have known if I hadn't told you?
Anyway, I like it.  I especially like the paper, so at least I got one last card from it!
Thank you for looking at my blog!
