Can't think of a title!

I hesitated to post this as I’m not sure if I like it or not. I love the colour scheme (as mentioned previously, it’s my new favourite). I like the idea of the white flowers on the Perfect Plum background… but I wish I’d not stamped the one at the bottom towards the right. And I don’t think the image is strong enough to carry such a vibrant background.

But it’s too dark to photograph any of the other cards I’ve made recently, so this is the one you’re getting!

  1. you're not sure if you like it...?? are you crazy?!?! I LOVE IT!!!! LOL

    this is such a fun, cute, gorgeous, aboslutely AMAZING card!
    great work helen :)

  2. This is so pretty. I love the white on the plum also. I'm going to have to try it.

  3. great color combo, love the white to make it "pop"

  4. First the colors really are great. The ribbon treatment is wonderful. The white flowers sprinkled everywhere are so cute. Great job.

  5. Lovely card, I for one am glad you posted it, thank you for sharing. How did you do the white flowers, is it with white embossing powder?

  6. Oooh, ooh, I know! "Raisin Daisy" for the plum and the flower petals that pop!

  7. It's stunning - love the white gel pen! CC

  8. Wow! those white flowers do pop off the card! I see what you mean about the center image being rather weak compared to the white flowers. Maybe you could use some versa mark stamped over the perfect plum image (using the stamp a ma jig of course) and embossing it so it would still be perfect plum but shiny to compete with the white flowers. But just the way it is a great card just the same! Thanks Helen
