"Too Busy in the Middle"

My card for today was created using the "Wild Roses" set. I just LOVE this set. It matches the Recollections decorative paper from Stampin' Up! I was just playing around with the set and came up with this. My son said it's too busy in the middle. Perhaps but the focal point is suppose to be in the middle! He doesn't have a degree as and art critic so . . . !

I use Bravo Burgundy and Old Olive for my colors. I did use the Stamp-a-ma-jig to line up the black outline stamp. I wanted to get it as close to the lines in the first image as possible. I learned how to use that thing a few months back and I'm just LOVIN' it!!! I used it on the Fun Filled cards I posted earlier this week. It was used on the diamond background. I had to repeat that image several times. I was REALLY glad I only had to redo that card 5 times!!! I like using the Stamp-a-ma-jig but I don't think I'd be using it that much!! But the cards are done and next time I'm going to find one with an easier background!!! Anyway, this is the card I'm posting tonight. It's a quick versatile card which can be used for many different occasions.

Thank you for checking in.
