Papertrey Ink Make It Monday Challenge: Entry #2

Here is another card I made for the MIM challenge over on the Papertrey Ink blog (Nicole Heady blog).  I had visions in my head for how this would go, and, well, it did not really turn out as great as I had envisioned.    I made this to go with a birthday coffee ensemble I am hoping to create next week for a good friend of mine, whose birthday is coming up this month.  I am including two sets of pictures.  One is the before picture where I had a lot of blank space in the top right corner of the card.  The second set is my attempt to draw the eyes upward and around the card by adding something to that corner.  Not sure if that was a good idea or not.  Enjoy.

Adorable Melissa, love the 1st and 2nd, can't decide which I like best. Great color combo, and great streamers!

Beautiful card!

Great cards Melissa! Love the colours. I'm not an expert, but from a design point of view I would go with the first one. The 'white' space in the upper right gives someplace for the eye to rest and also helps direct the focus onto your pretty banners and cluster.
