Another one of those cards where I loved the idea but it just didn't turn out right. I don't think the colors are quite right for this card. Does it need some embellishments? Eyelets? Should I color in the images? Please give me any suggestions or compliments. I appreciate all comments!

I love it - I wonder if you colored in one of each of the items to coordinate with the card - color one of the flowers in the yellow, one of the leaves in the red.... A heart in the red....the snow...yellow (Don't eat the yellow snow)....I don't know - it is cute though. Great layout!

I really like the idea that was posted earlier about coloring in one of each item. I have made cards that just didn't seem quite right before and that made all the difference. I'm not a fan of any yellow tones, so I would suggest maybe a mat color change. One clip from the hodgepodge hardware may also give it a little kick if you attach it right where you have your tape knotted. That may give it just a little bit of that something more. I love your format, that card idea and layout is fantastic. It is going into my favorites.

Well, I'm certainly no expert, so my opinion may not be all that worthwhile...but, I LOVE what you have done, exactly as it is...I love the colors, the layout is great, and the seasons on the twill tape just brings it all together for me. I think someone suggested a clip somewhere on the card, and that might be good, but for me, I wouldn't feel a need to change anything. It is going into my favs. TFS
