Recycling!



This is the same card from March 6th, but I took some advice from a friend and rejigged it a little. I moved the flower panel onto the green background which gave me room for the sentiment. I'm not sure that "cute" is the right sentiment, but it was the only round one in the set, lol.

My favorite part is the two lots of ribbon, I just used moss and chocolate together.

I now think that the card is far more balanced than before. The cute circle offsets the flower and it doesn't stand out so much. And the "so very" tones down the pink stripe.

Sorry, I know this post is a bit precious, lol, but I wanted to explain why I was unhappy with it and what I did to change it.
