Off Centered Circle Sentiment Card

Happy Saturday, Everyone!! I made this card last night. I've been having insomnia ever since my kids went on summer break. I think it's because when they are in school, I can''t stay up late. I have to get up early and drive them to school.

I've been the sort of person that needs my day super filled up. I don't know why. . .I can't just not do "nothing". Well, now that they are on break, it's like every opportunity I have to stay up late, I've been doing it.

I hate going to sleep. I just feel that sleep cuts into my time to do something. Are you that way? Do you look forward to sleeping or are you the sort that feels that there's too much to do in life that sleep is preventing you from doing all the things you want to do?

Anyway. . .do you see the center of my flower? Do you like it? Well, I actually have the sentiment off centered and the button placed the way it's placed because I messed up punching the circle sentiment. For some reason it kept punching the sentiment off-centered. I did it twice and decided I'm not going to do it again so I placed it on the flower off centered and added the button to hide the fact that the sentiment is not quite centered within the circle.
Sometimes you just need to improvise! LOL!

I always enjoy the unbalanced...adds more uniqueness to something so I think this is great.

It looks great! I love the off balance and the color combo is great! I too get very little sleep. I'm up at about 4:30 each morning for work.. then stay up late trying to finish things at home
