Another card sold today!

Hello lovely bloggers,

I am busy making more cards to sell at a bazaar on May the 14th and I need to buck up since I don't have a large stock left.
Here is a card I have made which I seem to be quite pleased with. I saw this style somewhere ( apologies that I cannot remember) long ago and have been wanting to make it since then. I punched a round aperture and stuck flowers in a manner that made a filigree like arrangement. Much as I was tempted to add a sentiment, I refrained from the thought so that it remains a generic card. The MS border punch on the left is was bought with much passion some months ago is being aired for the first time. In the centre of the layered flowers are pearls. The ribbon has been recycled from somewhere (cannot recollect).
Do you think the empty space at the bottom looks too empty? 

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Lovely, Monica! I do not think your space is too "blank" but if YOU think it is, try making one of your medium size flowers and put it in the left corder of your card, just inside the pretty vine border. Very elegant with the satin ribbon, pearly centers, and circular "window" cut. Gorgeous! hugs always, de

Hi Monica

What a gorgeous white on white card I love this! I think I agree with Donna's comment, and perhaps if you want to add a flower bottom left and what about three pearls bottom right too. I find that if I feel a card "needs" something that if I come back to it I usually work it out or like you ask people what they think!

I found you via MIM!

Take care
