1. It's simple.
2. Doesn't use a lot if DSP, but gives you a big enough piece to show it off.
3. Eliminate that too much white space feeling by using a colored base. (This is such a duh moment for me!)
For the embellishments I literally dropped them on the card (without adhesive) until I liked the layout. (Ok, I dropped and re-dropped, and gave it some encouragement until I found what I liked.). New trick for me with the embellishments and attaching rhinestones, glue dots, was to use my paper piercer. Fabulously easy way, easier than snips.
Next up will be taking this and adding some modifications to step it up, a bit.
