Too much or not enough?

Over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday this week's optional twist is to use your favorite colors at Christmas time. I love red and and white, lots og glitter, gold and silver, and I used them all on my card.

I've used an image found in store over at Stitchy Bear Designs (Floppy Latte's "Bird and Bauble Ornaments") - our sponsor for November.

The image is colored with Promakers, gold and silver gel roll pens and I used lots of glitter glue as well. For the branches I used a MS punch and glitter paper. I'm not sure about those, I've been thinking I should remove them or add more - or leave it as it is now... I think I'm going to ponder about this until the card is put in the letter box... Maybe you can help me by sharing your opinion?

I'd also like to enter this card in Without Words - Christmas Preparations challenge.

I think its just perfect as it is Pia. It may look top heavy if you add any more. Love the image. I get really cross when you put lots of glitter and sparkle on a card and the camera does not pick it up!

I love the card. The baubles are the best festive color and shine. The only suggestion I have would be to duplicate the top bow and raise it up over the first bow and add the greenery with the bow, if not, it's beautiful as is!!

sandie said...

You know me Pia, always have an opinion! I love the green glitter and why not add a touch more, I think it is a fun addition to your card x

Oh Wow!!! this is SO gorgeous Pia… I love how this card sparkles… such a lovely image. I think the beautiful branch at the top is perfect. Because the bird is hanging down… the branch at the top balances it out… if you know what I mean?
Hope you have a lovely evening!
Big Hugs Sue B xx

My eye caught the title of this one when I was above and I had to give my two cents, cents you asked! I vote for none, Pia. I think that beautifully colored bird and beribboned bow is magnificent enough with just the red matting on the gold card base. But you know how I love CAS. Hugs, Darnell

scrappymo! said...

Another beautiful card. The branches look fine but I am with Darnell...it dies not need them.

It looks fine but looks great without them too. Something about the image calls out CAS to me so that is why I say leave them off.

Hope you do not mind my opinion...you did ask!! teehee
