Honesty thread - Hmmmm. Maybe 1" or so of horizontal crimping across the center of the card. Maybe it's just me, but the cocoa piece looks out of place, like it just doesn't go with the card. Maybe remove that layer and replace it with a cluster of the vellum flowers.

Honesty thread: I really like this. I agree that the cocoa is not great here. I would mount the main image on the base color of NQN and center it more, then add a twill ribbon with the vellum and brad at the knot. Great card though.

Honesty thread - this is a great card, but I agree about the cocoa looking a bit out of place. I love the idea of crimping halfway up - that would look fab! I would mount the artichoke layer on some cream to make it stand out more. How about moving the Vellum daisy so that it's just to the bottom right corner of the greeting so that it just very slightly covers the edge of the greeting. You might have to stamp the greeting slightly further in to accommodate this.

Honesty thread: I like the main flower and the artichoke background with the leaves. I agree that the cocoa piece doesn't do anything for me. I think a background something (maybe crimping like others suggesting) might be a nice touch. I like the vellum daisy. I think hemeynell's suggestion to move it to the bottom right corner would be great!

honesty thread: I really like this one! My first thought was that there is alot of space in the upper right corner, but I can't think what to do to help it--maybe a BG stamp? Canvas fixes everything right?
