I'm still not sure I love this card, but I didn't want to over do it by adding a BG -- thought with stickles and the scalloping it might be too busy. I love this color combo though, very dainty and springy. With my yard covered in a sheet of ice, I could use some spring!
I think this card is perfect as it is. It has the perfect balance of color and proportion. It is 'comfort food' for the eyes on this blustery cold and icy day....any day for that matter. Thank you so much for the reference to the 'Rule of Thirds." Elaine
