Remember this card?



I polled you and this is what you thought:

Throw it away! 0 (0%)
Keep the stamped panel and start again! 20 (41%)
I'm not sure why, I just don't like it either. 4 (8%)
In the Words of Tony the Tiger" It's Grrrreat!" 5 (10%)
Add more stuff! 19 (39%)

I started out trying to make a fairly simple card. I liked the stamped panel, but the angle of the purple bothered me. So I took the advice of almost everybody and I kept the stamped panel and I added more stuff. I added an embossed panel, a purple scalloped border, and a purple background.

And here's the make over.

So what do you think now?

Great fix, Jacki! Like it so much better now. Love the basket of spring flowers with that cool frame stamp behind it, too. You really are on a roll lately. Keep it up!
