Why did I do that?

I am referring to the faux stitching I put across the top of this card.  I'm not liking it.  But I thought Mickey and Tracey might like the double curtain fold, so I posted the card anyway.

 The papers, ribbon, shimmer trim, and stamps are CTMH.

3 hours later....
Well,  now we've had our daily walk to the 7-eleven; DH bought cigarettes; I got a double snickers bar with a wrapper that said Irritable on it; ate both bars on the way back home (today's lunch); ran to the farner's market BY MYSELF to pick up just enough food to get us through until Monday when we head back to PA; 
and now I'll submit this card to a few challenges:

As You Like It Challenge - Favorite Occasion & Why (Birthdays - I love Birthday Cake! and finding that perfect gift for the special people in my life!)

Okay.  That's enough of that!  
I should have bought 2 candy bars.
