So I had this idea ... (updated 12/16)

I had to see if these circles were 3/4 inches - and they were! So I had this idea that I could punch them out and raise up a few of them, and I did! Then, as usual, I got stuck. I added the strip of dots on the brown ribbon, then I added the buckle, but I think if I tie a knot it will be just as good. It needs a sentiment, but besides that, what's wrong with this? It needs something... help?

Quick update: I just added a red layer, and I think it helps, but it still needs something. What shape do you think I should use for a sentiment? Or should I stamp it directly on the paper?



Update 12/16: Thanks for the feedback! I removed the three circles, and to counteract the straight lines, I added a loopy sentiment, and it's not even Christmas-related! I also swapped out the buckle for a knot. What do you think?

I don't like the 3 circles in the straight link on the lower left corner. Can you rearrange them into more of a cluster? You have so many straight lines on the card I want to see something other than a straight line.

I like the colors and the top with the circles popped her and there- very stirking.

This card is fantastic, agree with Healther maybe if you put the circles in more of a cluster and maybe a sentiment on the bottom right. Love the addition of red

LOVE the new red layer...and the dimension with the popped circles on the top is very fun...Perhaps remove the bottom circles...put a bigger buckle/charm( not too big...lol!) or bow and off-set with sentiment on bottom left-side...on the paper in a coordinating metallic emboss to match the brads & buckle.

What a fun card! I love you idea of popping up the circles. I think the sentiment should be stamped directly onto the paper - maybe in the same red color as that layer.

Wow- just those minor changes made this a wow card. I love the bold greeting.

I didn't see these until you'd already posted your changes... great job! The red layer is great and removing the bottom circles and adding the sentiment makes it easier on the eyes- not so busy. Lovely!

Yummy,
I love this card.. I miss the three circles now.
I "do" busier cards, so it's not too much for me "with" the three circles..
Great job.
