Another Book Card

Good Morning everyone! Well, this book card turned out to be a comedy of errors! I don't know why I always feel the need to rush, which usually leads to mistakes....right??? Well, I finished all the panels except I did not tape the image onto the panel. I taped all the panels onto the card and when I wanted to tape the front panel, I realized my mistake. I erroneously taped what was supposed to be the back panel to the front of the card. LOL!!!! I had no choice at this point but to tape the back panel on the front and try to save this card. Well, thank goodness I did not tape the images on the panels yet!!!! I then tried to embellish the new front to make it more presentable.
Here is the inside of the book card:

Here is the back of the card, wich was supposed to be the front. There was a bare spot for London Tilda, so I had to find another image for that spot and I thought with the Eiffel Tower background, Rose Scent Tilda would fit perfectly.
You think I can salvage this card??? I made it for a friend who will be traveling to Europe. Thanks for visiting my blog. Love you guys!

Well, it turned out to be absolutely GOR-GEOUS beyond words and there is no "mistakes" to see! It looks PERFECT as always .. decorated with the PERFECT Tilda since your friend will be traveling to Europe! :) You've decorated the inside so STUNNINGLY .. I Love It!!!!!!!!!

    It's beautiful.. I can't see anything wrong with it.

  11. I am laughing - I am really laughing because what you considered a boo boo to me is outstanding work. When I first saw the front I thought spectacular - one of your best. And what is even better is the surprise someone will receive when they see the back! The inside is gorgeous as well - you are just too dag gone talented Christina!
