Color Inspiration-2 Cards

I made the large butterfly card on the left first, but didn't really like it. I think I don't like the circles and butterfly being off center, I wish it was more in the center. So I set it aside and made the "wishing you all the best" card. I kept looking at the butterfly card, and it began to grow on me, but still wish that the circles and butterfly were in the center. The "wishing you all the best" card was inspired by this card.

Both of these are wonderful! I think what may be bugging you is the card is a bit "heavy" on the left side...I don't think the focal point needs to be moved, but maybe if you moved the sentiment to the other side or put a little bling on the right side it might help balance it better. Just a thought...I know you didn't ask and I hope you don't mind my posting my measly two cents. I'm really loving this butterfly set and I adore the colors together! You do awesome work and I know I don't tell you that often enough...

Love the one on the left. I agree with Jeanne that if you moved the sentiment (or made it smaller and didn't have it anchor the card) that the offset butterfly wouldn't bug you as much. But they are both great cards...

Both cards deserve a special place! Now I know what I really need! Clear embossing powder!

I agree with Jeanne about the butterfly card. Personally I like the circles and the butterfly but there is empty space on the right of the card. That said I would be overjoyed to have made this card. Love the colors!

Both are very pretty, but I LOVE the second card the best! Great job!
