WMS May Blog Waltz



Welcome! I was so happy to get my new WMS stamps in time to make a card for this Blog Waltz! Here it is:



I'm thinking it needs a bit more of something (now that I'm looking at it on my screen)...maybe some gems in the tree blossoms.

Thanks for looking!
Melissa

I don't think it needs anything else... it is perfect as it is! Love how you've done the border with the ribbon in particular.

I agree...this is clean and simple. Lovely.

Genevieve said...

So pretty Melissa :)

Jen said...

Maybe red gems like apples or something.

It is beautiful.

Belinda said...

So lovely with the blue leaves! Fab!

Hi, Melissa!
I like your card the way you created it. Asian style is usually simplistic so it is in line with the theme.

If you're really wanting to add something, maybe similar color glitter/stickles to brighten or emboss the tree top.

Thanks for the inspiration!

Love your choice in color with the blue. Having the background stamp underneath the ribbon side is a nice touch! Looks great!

I love the way the leaves blend from light to dark! Lovely card, lovely colors!

Joanne Gilch said...

Funny isn't it how we think we need to just add this or that. I like the simplicity of your card, but if you insist a little glitter may look great, either stickles or whatever you have. Either way it's a great card just like it is!!!
