Fun Filled Fun!

Ok, here are the final three suggestions on how to improve my original card. The first card in this post is what Paula suggested I do:

"I would make the piece that has the diamonds a little narrower and longer to got with the focal point a bit better."

Now as I was making these I was assuming this is what they had in mind, hopefully I am right!!! Moving the top design to the side and making it longer did take the focal point away from the button!

Thank you Paula. Please email me your snail mail address and I'll send you the card and a little something for playing!!!

This next card was made using Denise's suggestion:

First of all I love the colors and textures you have created with this card. Keep everything the same but just move some things around. Take off the button and add a 3-D mounted flower in it's place. Take the main image and move it to the left and pop it so you can run some ribbon and twine under it. Secure the button to the right of the image with the twine. If you want to add some bling add gold brads in the corners of the card base.Hope that helps! Next time I am not feeling the love for a card I am going ask my blog readers to throw me a help idea.

Again, I'm hoping this is what you had in mind. I'm usually pretty good at following directions!!! The ribbon and Hemp didn't go together and brads in the corners didn't go with the newly placed button. But all in all I think it worked!

Thank you Denise, please email me with your snail mail address too.

And last but not least is Marcy's suggestion:

"Hey, I like the idea of popping up a flower definitely.Just a thought...what about clear embossing the boots. Might make them pop more."
Marcy, please email me with your snail mail address as well!
This was very fun. I will have to try this again! It was great to hear all of your suggestions and see such a wealth of talent out there!
I just saw today that this is one of the retiring sets. It's too bad because it's a fun set to play with. But I'm sure what Stampin' Up! is replacing it with will be even more fun!

Thank you for all of your wonderful comments and suggestions!
