CraftMad September Card Sketch - Timeless Tuesday

I have been struggling of late to get some 'crafting mojo' ............ everything I try, just turns to mush............ ;-)

This is the first card I am at least half happy with  LOL




While I was deciding which nesties to use to cut out my image, I came across the current TimelessTuesday challenge and it suggests to extend creations outside the frame!  The glasses were extending beyond my nesties frame and I did not want to go up to the next size as it would be too big for the scalloped edge!  So, a perfect solution to my problem!

I started positioning my card with the current CraftMad card sketch challenge in mind, but no matter what I tried, the two embellishments across the bottom just did not work -  so I changed it a bit  ;-)

I am struggling with my nephew's wedding card - I have posted two pics in the hope that I can get some guidance.




Below is the same card, but turned on it's side and some flourishes added.


What do you think?  Any suggestions?
I want the card to be simply elegant - I am not sure if the card is making the statement that I want.

  2. Thank you Cheryl for your offer of cutting some hearts out, you are most generous. I love your suggestion about using hearts and will use my CraftROBO to cut the hearts out. Stay tuned for an update!

  3. I think all these cards are wonderful. The colours in the male card and the ribbon tabs around the oval are brilliant. The wedding cards just stunning.
