H{Ippity} hop

okay all my Ippity friends - I need some help!!  I am working on putting together a couple of notecards to teach for our women's retreat.  I don't think I like this one. So what could I do differently?  I think I'm just not happy with this paper (which I used because I have enough of it for all 35 women who are signed up)? not sure... what do you think?

I love the devotional stamps--and those colors together are great! I really like it--and if you used it at your retreat, I know it will be a hit! If you want to change anything...maybe make the bottom stripe piece all the way to the bottom of the card and then round the corners. Or here is another way to change it--turn the paper so the stripes are going vertical or horizontal (this will mean you have to waste some paper..since the stripes are diag....but it will change the look a bit!) Other than that--I like it! TFS!

I think this card is wonderful as is Rona and I really do like your paper choices! When you posed the question, the only thing that came to mind was to see what the card would look like if you switch the placement of the striped paper and the swirls. If you don't like this card though, you could send it to me...heehee! *smile* It really is lovely as is!

I like the card - but maybe it needs a little more definition. How about going around the edge with faux stitching in black ink? Maybe change the black background to a green or brown to break up the grey-ness? Hope this helps you with ideas!

For me, the stripes and the patterned heart might be fighting....what do you think?

What about some bling on the heart like stickles or rhinestones? Or stickles or glitter on the swirls that surround the bible verse? Otherwise I think is is so very pretty!!

I think your card is beautiful Rona :) the ladies will love it! I read through the other posts and if you want to change it up a bit, I think TinkerandJingeBear's idea would look good and make it pop a bit.
Good luck with your retreat!
p.s. I love the embossing :)

Lovely card. How about edging the grey card with a black ink to add definition. Or colour the heart to pop it out. It's a great design but play with the coours... maybe try it with a green background?
