New Banner Problems and Resolution

I had done a new banner about a week and a half ago but it ran into some problems:
- the color that I choose didn't match the site's background and it clashed so much; and
- the photoshop file I created when flattend to jpg wasn't very at first couldn't come out correctly and when I fixed something again, it looked too blurry that it was just too shameful to display.

You can see the intial below and you'll know what I mean.

The above items where all from Teri Hanson's In Love Kit, available at, aside from the layout with photo since that's an old layout of mine that I thought of combining to the banner. Font is French Script MT.

I gave up a bit since it took me so long to crank the above out then after all that realizing all the problems! I was in no mood by then...super upset. So I had a bit of time to fix it up today and since I already have an idea of what I wanted and found the right papers to make it match with the site...what you see is this. Happy happy that it's finally done!

I used Doodleboog's Pterophyllum Kit, available at under Designer - "Doodleboogs". Font is French Script MT also.
