Default Help Opinion Wanted

Okay - I can take it - as long as your gentle! I need opinions on these two cards that I did. I just can't decide which one to make. Which one do you like and/or what suggestions do you have for me.

The one on the left is has mirobeads on the bird and the tree. The one on the left - I used crayon resist on the fruit and bow of the wreath and then using sage shadow brayered over it.

Ok you asked for opinion. I would have left the micro beads off cause it takes away from the birds. It may also be the picture. I like the other one. It is very nice.

OK, gentle it is.

I like the one on the right better. I tend to go for more simplistic designs and the other one has too much glitter for my taste, besides being a little difficult to see well.

They're both lovely, but I prefer the square, green one.

Okay, I'll dare to be different! I like the one on the left, as I am partial to the brown, earthy colors. But, I would leave the microbeads off. The sage card is very nice, but I, personally, tend to like more color.

I too, like the sage one, But the other has potential. I would also leave off the beads, and while I like to skew my image rather than have them be completely straight, I think In this case it would look a little better if it were straight or at least have less skew. But I think it is a really great card. I like the earthy brown and the mulberry paper underneath. Great job!

The card on the right gets my vote. Maybe it's the colors, but I find it much more striking as the card on the left.

Just my humble opinion.

I like them both. 'My' colors are more like the sage.

But for the card on the left...maybe you could have the tree and mulberry paper straight up and down, rather than at an angle. And the microbeads would be a nice touch on a few pears only. Then tie a cord bow around the bottom pot using a 1/16 punch on each side of the rim. The yellow is very striking, though! Nice for fall

well, I'm really glad durhamzoo posted that she liked the brown one because I felt really weird reading all the decisive "green on the right" when I looked at them and immediately said the green one was pretty but I liked the brown one (minus 98% of the beads).

First I want to say - thanks for all the input - you were all very kind. I ended up chosing the one on the right, although I do want to remake the one on the left using some of your suggestions.

I needed to do 20 for a swap - so in a way am glad that I did the one on the right!
