Do Over

Oooh, happy day. You guys get two cards for the price of one. The first one was one I made for my niece who turned 15. I really liked it, but I wasn't in love with it. But it was the day before her birthday and it needed to go in the mail (like i don't have a bamillion cards just layin' around), so this was what she got. Since most people don't look at my cards like I do (i tend to obsess over every little detail. didja notice?), I figured, she'd just be happy to have someone tell her happy birthday and to get a card. Who doesn't like getting cards in the mail? So I just told myself to relax and went with it. But I just couldn't get over not being happy with it. Then I did something I never do. I did the card again. I know. Crazy, right? Only this time I got it to come out how I had it in my mind. More white (or technically, vintage cream) space and a tighter frame. It just seems cleaner to me. Oh, and I had to use my new pearls. Love. them. What do you think? Have a preference?

Hmmmm, decisions, decisions. The blue one (love those flowers, by the way) seems more laid back and dreamy, while the pink one is sharper and crisper. Amazing what different compositions can do to the same design!

Like them both, but I think the pink one is better, like you said with more cream background. Like the middle of the flowers in the blue one.

Sorry Mint, I think they are both great. Way to hard on yourself.
