Better With Butterflies

Hello everyone,

The original card was posted on April 26, 2010.

Like yesterday's card, I didn't remove anything from the original card but instead added three double layer butterflies which were punched with two EK Success butterfly punches from Stampin' Up Shimmery White and Bermuda Bay.  The embellishments are Peggy's Pretties.

I'm no design expert by any stretch of the imagination so I can't pin point exactly what is the problem with the original card.  I think the main issue is that it seems unfinished.  With the addition of the butterflies, the card just seems to look more complete.  I wonder if it is because the three original elements, though placed well in the layout, are small, medium and large with the focal element smack in the middle of the card, competing with the busy Hero Arts Starburst Lace stamp.  The three butterflies seems to spread out the line of sight and balance the simple sentiment with the busy stamp.

I hope you enjoy this redo and come back to SPI again soon.
