Honesty thread: it's cute the way it is! But if it were my card, I would switch the tan paper to white, and stamp a few snowflakes in blue around the edges of it. I would move the mittens on the string (very cute!) to "hang" from a brad in the lower right corner of the sentiment layer. And to really go for broke, I would tie a narrow white ribbon vertically aoout an inch from the left side.
If you give it a try, can you post a link to the 'Do the Dare' thread? I would love to see it! :0

I really think it's cute! I do love, love, love the mittens. I agree with showmestamper with all her suggestions. I would only add that you may want to match the green cs to the ink color of the mittens (could just be the scanner distortion) and then I would layer the white sentiment on a black piece of CS slightly larger than the sentiment, if you are using black ink. That extra little line will pop the black words! Very nice card!

I was in your gallery and tried to post on this card but the site decided to lock me out as it often does.
Honesty thread: I like this card and the only thing I'd try is to layer the blue on white and change the green to white. Also I notice a few cards have not been cropped to size and I've noticed low views when that happens.

honesty thread: this is such a super cute card! I think part of it is making sure your scanned image is cropped down to the edge of the card, kwim? I also agree changing the tan to white would make it stand out a bit more. again I think this is really super cute!

BH Thread - I think this is so cute! I agree that the tan should be white...and that the green mittens should match the green paper. I would probably have the mittens hanging down from the string instead of facing up...I like the idea of hanging them from a brad....I like having a thin white ribbon or even hemp virtically on the left with the mittens hanging from the bow part (towards the top with the saying angled the other way for more room.) I hope that makes sense.
