Paper Players Challenge #70

I actually made 3 cards for this challenge.... the biggest problem I've had is deciding which one to officially submit. This first card, I like the basic design. But as you can see, there are a couple spots where I got ink in unintended places. So that one is out.

 This card, I also basically like. I couldn't decide what to do for a sentiment, though, and it doesn't feel 'finished' to me. It needs some brads or buttons or ribbon or something. I may yet go all out and use all three.

In the end, this card was my favorite. I like the design, I like the colours, I'm basically happy with the stamping... it's as good as I was going to get, anyway. Some days you just have to accept that.

All three cards are great! I do agree, though, that the middle card needs some brads or buttons. Maybe on either side of the image?
