    Default C&C needed on this card

    Found this great picture from a card that I cut out that is perfect for my mother and the out of bounds challenge.

    Built up the picture to really make it pop. Added paper elements.

    Tried it this way first but it didn't seem right.


    Remembered Charys rule of thirds and figured it was that the butterfly had nowhere to fly on the page.

    So I rearranged.


    Better... but it's just still off to me. What am I missing? More paper covering up the white? Less blocks? An embellishment (and what?)

    I kept the background colors muted so the picture would pop. What am I missing?

    (The only thing glued down in the 5 layers under the picture and the picture. So that's permanent. Everything else is moveable and up for debate. )

    Help! I care more about making this perfect for my mom than making it eligible for the out of bounds challenge.

    PS, The orange and the layer just smaller then that are metallic. It's less in your face in person.

    I actually like the butterfly on the opposite side so he could fly off the page. I know I'm weird, but I love that card. It is so beautiful and elegant and professional looking.

    I agree with Erin. While they are both nice, I love your first version!

    If I go with the first version, does it need anything else?

    It doesn't need a thing. I think it's perfect. Where did you get the butterfly picture?

    I like the layout of the first one better, but you can read the words on the second one better, iykwim? I don't know if that's just the photo, or if that's irl too. I would also try it with the photo centered more (with the burgundy paper) - just to see what it looks like, I like moving stuff around to see how it changes the whole thing.

    My husband commented that I should try putting a lighter color under the words. I'll play around some more and take some more pics.

    PP is right about reading the words easier on the 2nd one, but I too like the LO of the 1st one better. BEAUTIFUL!

    That may be the lighting as it's the same sticker and same paper under it in both.
