On the Darkside

When I read this week´s theme for the SPA challenge, I immediately had an idea. Then tonight I tried it - and it didn´t work. But I had made some acrylic textured backgrounds a few hours before, and so I decided to just play ... and here´s the result that I like much more than my first, planned, card!

I agree. It is frustrating to have an idea and have it not work out, but sometimes the end result is something we like better.

This is great. Love the colors!
