Soda can Embellishment- bare or leave alone

Hello there, I am Susan Daly and I am new to Stamping Critique. This is my first post.
I made this card for Card Positioning System's weekly sketch. My main focus in this card was the oval embellishment that I made out of a soda can. I wanted to highlight how the embellishment turned out.
My question is should I add more to this card or leave it alone. It may look a bit bare.

I do not think it looks bare at all! And I see you used ribbon already - good girl! :-)

Your colors are very pretty together, but maybe a bit too subtle. I wonder if the beautiful oval can somehow be 'popped' more, like with a very narrow black border? Maybe?

Brenda said...

I agree with Leslie. Might you use a very narrow black border between the pop can embellishment and the card stock and again maybe on the outside of the card stock?

Welcome to the group!

I like the idea of a black border to pop the oval.

Also- I'm not sure I like the yellow flowers against the soda can embellishment. Maybe darker flowers?

I'll add another vote for a contrasting border on the oval - not sure what colour though; black may be a bit harsh.

I also agree with Heather as I don't like the yellow flowers. All white or another soft colour that is already on your card may be better.

Okay, maybe not Black. How about Chocolate Chip or another really dark Brown?
