Broken Window

Do you ever have a time when it doesn't matter how much you try, the card just won't come together?  This is my third try at the cracked glass technique.  The first time, I didn't have any clear embossing powder and I used sparkle embossing powder which totally obscured the image.  The second time, I tried to  rub ink over the top to get the cracked lines to show up.  The problem was that the ink smeared underneath the embossing powder and it just looked awful.  I'm so glad this finally worked out.  The image is MFP's Dogwood Flowers.
