Sailing The Seas Birthday Card...4 Of 130...

Another birthday card for my sister...
This card almost made me cry...
I took two days, 
and I dismantled it 8 times...

Each time I completed it,
I would take a step back,
and it just didn't look right.

So I would take it apart and 
try it again...

At the 8 try,
I was happy.

Cardstock by Recollections
