Holly #2

Hi and welcome back to my room .. this is my second post tonight but  it's with an edited version of the last card in previous post . 
Please scroll down after this and see the difference . let me know what YOU  think.
I am going to enter this one also in the 'Off The Page'  challenge by

Now to explain .When I made the first card I inked  and stamped the holly first, coloured some of the berries red ,  then  added  the sentiment in green as well . I thought straight away that there was no life in the card so I added the bells in different colours . GRRRR ! I knew , I just knew I was not happy with that . Thankfully some suggestions were made and I tried again . Hope this is ok to do this way .
Don't forget to check my first post for the day .
Catch you again soon , Cheers for now , Shirley-Anne.

This is lovely, I really like the first one, but do prefer the red sentiment on this one. It's great that we get these suggestions isn't it? I'm finding the feedback so helpful. Jo x

I agree this one is much better, simpler and classier IMHO anway lol :O) Viv xx

Monica said...

This is lovely as well and maybe I prefer the simplicity of this to the first one. But both are great.

Chrissie said...

This one is much improved Shirley-Anne. It has much more cohesion!
Well done.

Marlene said...

This is so very pretty. Looks even nicer than a lot of store-bought ones!

Hi Shirley Ann! It is so hard to make a one layer card that still has that spark to make it interesting !! I like your second one best- the red sentiment that brings out the red berries is enough to give it that bit extra! As Mandi said..good on you for giving it another go!

Caroline Hallett said...

looks so much more zingy in Red, glad you gave it another go - thats what i like about the blog the feedback is awesome and helps us to improve upon perfection!

I really love this card and had to pop back to see what the 'before' card looked like! I do prefer this one - just the kind of Christmas card I like!
