Multi Challenge Card

I'm lucky this week to be able enter one card in three challenge blogs. It would have been a couple more had I pulled my finger out and got cracking with the card instead of browsing my way through lots of blogs!
With hindsight I should have made this a square card as I think, the more I look at it, that it looks empty. If it doesn't grow on me I might try and demolish it and re-do it square. Unless my daughter approves of it as she is very honest where my cards are concerned. I think that I should have used a stronger green cardstock too.
I stamped the images onto the patterned paper, cut them out and mounted onto the green card and then cut the circles out using Nesties.
Does anyone else re-act the same to their cards as I do to mine? It's a wonder that I ever manage to send them to anyone, let alone sell them!
