Some advice!

Afternoon, hope you are all well? I am here in the hope I can have some constructive criticism! I made a card this afternoon and spent ages trying to get the size of the square (cream one) the right size to fit the card, it was right but when I stuck it down it was too big!! .... does it look too bad? or can I get away with it? Also do you think it needs a sentiment? my mind has gone completely blank, I think it looks "ok" but not brilliant? not sure if I should just recycle the mounted image and try and start again and write it off as a bad job! 

Help please?

P.S you can't see from the photos but I have used glossy accents on the bulb.

I think it looks great - I think a sentiment would make it too fussy. What about a smaller flower in the opposite corner to the other one? Jaqui x

It's not that bad. I would use some pearls along the top right edge of the cream square to divert the eye from the top and left corners that are slightly out of the card...

I think it looks great! Handmade projects do not have to be perfect. I think adding anything else would take away from the image. That's just my two cents :)

Ok...leave the sentiment for now but absolutely glitter that light bulb...it's begging for it! I can promise you that the card will look totally different Tams. Then once that's done look at it again...it might not need a sentiment. If you decide on one how about 'not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse'. You can put it bottom left so part of it overlaps the cream triangle coming down if you know what I mean. Other than than it's gorgeous :-D xx

I think the glitter idea from Kerry is a fabulous one and would ofset the large flower with maybe three larger pearls in the top left corner running linear, it is a lovely image and to add too much would take the eye away from it
but love the presentation

oohh a HM :-) my faves ,, now ,, to throw in my twopennyworth :-) Your card is gorgeous ,, I would put the flower in the top left corner and add a sentiment to the bottom left to balance it ,, you can never have too much glitter either ,, so glittering the bulb is a fab idea :-)


luv

Oh love the image Tams give the glitter ago and I would balance the flower out with some pearls or gems in the other corner

Lovely card as is but I do agree with the glitter and the suggestion from PepPop. Has been interesting reading everyones suggestions. I will have to remember some for when I need some balance on my cards...which will be soon. :-)

I think you could use the card as is but I also agree with the glitter and adding a little balance. Cute image.
