Well I THOUGHT I had it. I struggled for HOURS last night trying to get this card right. I finally decided to "step away from the card" and look at it again in the morning ... here is how I left it ...
I dunno - there's just something not sitting right with me about it. I thought of maybe tearing the left corner to expose the Marina cs but ... I dunno ... thoughts? I woke up at 5:20 this morning and couldn't get it out of my head so at 8:00 am I headed down to the craft room with a cup of coffee and whipped this one up in about 10 minutes:
I like it more than the first one. Once again, once I got the majority of it put together I thought "it needs something". Sigh. It's hard being me! I decided against more bling and went for some soft sponging of the edges of the layer. I MAY leave it as is ... then again, knowing me I'll likely have another kick at it later :) ... hmmm, now that I'm looking at it I think maybe if I just make the white layer smaller there would be less "dead space" and it might look better ... oh! or maybe just stamp more flourishes in the corners ... ok - I'm off to play ... (can you tell I have a real addiction to stamping??!!)
Have a fun day!
