After Advice

After tons of advice from some very talented ladies on Less is More, I have redone the card, I think it IS better, whether I have put the sentiment in the right place is another thing, but I am much happier with it.
I forgot to add to my first card I think this represents Spring as it is a new birth and Spring is about  new birth of plants and animals.

I have also made another of a beautiful Photoshop brush, I hope I've placed it in the correctly, I added Stickles to add a bit of interest and a knot of ribbon, I think it needed it..

I'm so pleased that you are working so hard and thinking so carefully about the creation of your CAS cards.
You're right, the little chick looks happy in that corner and he looks as though he's looking at the sentiment.
Did you try the acetate test?
If you stamp your sentiment onto a piece of acetate using a stamp positioner as in Week 1, you can then place it over your card in a variety of positions to see where you think it would be best. You then just pop your Lego or Stampamajig or whatever around the acetate , remove it and then stamp away.
If your sentiment is computer generated, you can do as Mandi does and print it onto a piece of paper, cut it out and move that around the card until the preferred position is found.
Thanks for this second entry... I'm delighted to see the move forwards! Wonderful!
