One of the first things I do in the morning is check my email and blog. I came across a couple of messages congratulating me on being one of the mojo winners. At first I thought it was one of those blog awards lol! Imagine my surprise when I went to visit Julee's blog Poetic Artistry to see that I was a winner of one of her gorgeous Verve Stamp sets!! I was so excited! I didn't even remember that she was giving anything away, I just love her monday mojo sketches. If you haven't seen them yet, you definitely need to check it out!


Today's challenge at splitcoast was to make a card using the colors So saffron, Wild wasabi, and Almost amethyst. I decided to go simple with the card that I made but am afraid that I went too simple. Now it looks naked to me but I don't know what I should add to it to liven it up. Any suggestions?
Supplies: Stamps- Mixed Bouquet, Studio G. Paper-So saffron, white, basic black. Ink-almost amethyst, so saffron, wild wasabi, black stazon. Accessories-scallop scissors, corner punch, cuttlebug

This card looks wonderful as is - no need to change it unless of course the mood strikes you to do so.

I agree with the other commenters, it is great just the way it is, the balance, color, texture, is just right. The only thing you could possible do is add some shine or outline to the flower to make it more bold.
