3 Squares

White base card with cream and brown pearlescent squares. I cut the hearts out with a woodware punch and added a peel-off sentiment and a silver heart shaped brad. I thought it looked okay and then remembered I had this brown ribbon with hearts on it in my stash to just added that too. -I hope it is not too much for the Less is More challenge which you can enter here.
Thanks for all your comments and I do agree with you about the brad. I wish I had never put it on now. LOL!!!
I just want to say 'Thanks' to all you gave me constructive critisism on my card - I do appreciate it and gives me inspiration to think more. Thanks everyone.

Hi Maureen,
This is a charming card. I think the ribbon is fine, but I'm not sure that you need the brad as well.
Those squares look very effective!
Thanks for joining us again and we'll look forward to seeing you next time!

Hi Maureen
Great card, I think Id say ribbon or brad. Maybe if the brad was on the sentimet so they eye didnt have to look elsewhere too!
But all in all a great card
Thanks for playing along,

Lovely card, but I guess I will have to agree with the others, the brad does draw your attention to top left, love the puunched out hearts.

Great card xx Jan

Very nice! Love the stamped hearts, but not sure about the heart brad. Overall very nice!

Maureen said...

lovely card but I'm with the others - no brad, the eye goes straight to it but it doesn't spoil the card.

Nice use of the heart punch, I'm another vote for losing the brad though, I'm afraid!

The punched hearts are super, and the colours warm and rich. I like the ribbon, not sure about the brad!

Sweet card. Such a clever way to use the heart punch and I like the way that the hearts are mirrored on the ribbon.

Ribbon gets my vote over the brad! Think this is a lovely card!

Hi Maureen, I like your card, just as it is. Like you, I used silver which doesn't show up well on some photos. Your brad is sweet and is so in line with the theme of your card. I would have used it too, but I would have placed it on the ribbon itself - just moving it over about a half inch. That way there aren't as many breaks in the white space. But like all art, I believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder. And I behold it as very lovely.

Lol, I love this challenge, I've never had peeps tell me before that my lay out could be improved and then give me tips to help, and so friendly too, love LIM. This is a great card for an engagement. I think folks have given great constructive criticism so I won't way in too!!!

Hugs

I love those pretty hearts and the elegant colour scheme. You could try putting the ribbon next to the squares, making it part of the group.
