Compare and Contrast: me vs Z1 (also pipe cleaners are not perfect)

It's alway painful when the scales fall from your eyes and something or someone previously revered or treasured is revealed to have a flaw (In fact, having scales on one's eyes in the first place also sounds kind of painful.). Today was that day for me with pipe cleaners. It turns out that they don't stick to paper very well. Our cards today are still based on pipe cleaners stuck to paper - we'll see if they survive the journey into school in my bag tomorrow.

I think the best way to present today's pieces is by comparing and contrasting.
pipe cleaners, craft, homemade Christmas card, Christmas card,
Mine
pipe cleaners, craft, homemade Christmas card, Christmas card,
Hers


















On the left, my effort. While simple, with clean lines and a tasteful level of jewelled decoration, I feel it lacks the exuberance, humour and freedom of Z1's card on the right.
