Default My First Upload . . .

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...ce&limit=last1

. . . what's it need??? I was originally quite pleased with the outcome but now think it's lacking something.

I originally left the frame white but it just didn't look right. I then colored it blue and added the black corner for balance--I wish now that I had included some gray eyelets on the corner, but it's too late now. Tried making some faux gray brads complete with CE but didn't like that look either. Thought of adding some ribbon to the upper left corner of the frame but since it's a man card, I was shying away from ribbon . . .

In an effort to avoid making the card all over again, I'm soliciting constructive criticism--what do ya think? Be honest but gentle. LOL!

Thanks!!

I think it looks great. I would not add a thing. Like you said it is a man's card so you don't need a lot of fluff. Great job. I'm sure your DH will love it.

Thanks for taking the time to respond and for your comments!!

Maybe I'll just leave it alone?! I am hopelessly obsessive so nothing is ever good enough. It's a curse! LOL

It's wonderful but is missing Woodstock. I realize the stamp, as a whole, is missing Woodstock too. You might was to hand draw some small birds in the background, but only a couple.
