Thinking of . . .

Today I have a couple of cards.  For each of them I had to answer the question, "How do I pull these elements together better?"  For this first one, I had the focal pre-made (JustRite's - die from "Nested Oval Medallion" & stamp from "Vintage Rose Medallions"; sentiment from K& Company), and the paper picked out when I realized that the black embossing really stood out and didn't work as well with the white and pink paper as I had thought.  In this case I added some Dazzles to add black to the corners and upper and lower edges.  This really helped tie things together better.
This second one had a similar problem.  The white on the focal (JustRites "Vintage Labels Three" die, & "For All You Do" and "Grand Sentiments" stamps) stood out against the more cream-colored background (paper came with Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine).  I went through my stash and found these white die cut embellishments for the corners to help pull things together better.

Gorgeous cards. The extras you added bring the cards together beautifully.
