On the day of class please bring your own adhesive and clear blocks and we will create 10 fabulous cards together!! So easy!!

When I'm designing cards I often hem and haw until a card looks just right. That's what happened with this card. I had it finished for a couple days and even took a picture, but it just wasn't right. I decided to change the ribbon color and BOOM! It was perfect! Here is what the card looked like with the other color ribbon:

The Calypso ribbon looks so much better. It gives the card some POP. It also follows the "rule of threes". The ribbon is Calypso. The flower is Calypso. And the "you" is Calypso. Now everything is nice and balanced in my world.

A ribbon is an easy thing to "fix". I currently have another card I finished that just doesn't look right yet. But that one I'm just going to have to start over with because the elements I want to change are glued down. Hope I have time today so I can share with you on Friday.
