Sometimes less is more

What an interesting title for a post, heh?! Well you'll see what I'm talking about. Today is the second day of the mini challenges on Catch The Bug. Today's challenge is to bling it up and Jodie even has a free digi image for you to work with. Here is where the less is more part comes in.

The first card I made yesterday was this one:(warning! If you have glasses handy, you're gonna want to put them on! LOL
Cute layout, cute image but just way too much color for me, so I made a second card with a lot less layers and I have to say I like it much better. Here is the second card:

Much better!!!! The image on the first card was colored with copics. The image on the second card was colored with my Stampin Up markers. The bling on the first card was glossy accents and glitter on the flowers. The bling on the second one is the metallic dots and the shiny cording.

Well, that's all I have for today. Be sure to stop by tomorrow for this weeks Cooking With Cricut project and another Catch The Bug card.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky

I love them both and I am actually a tiny bit more fond of the first one. You did a great job. I had a hard time with this image and yet you did "2". Good for you!

Both of these are so fun and each one I adore. Your vibrant colors are so fun and perfect for kids. Your second one is classy and clean with all the white space. Love them both.
