After looking at the first card that I posted, I decided it needed a little something more added to it. The first card had paper piercing all around the edges of the orange dp but did not stand out for some reason. So, I started by taking my black marker and filling in each dot to make it more noticeable. Once I did that, my white gel pen was calling out to me to put dots on the black matting and the scalloped circle. NOW I think that this card looks MUCH better. Here it is...... you be the judge!
I hope that you have found inspiration in my re-do!
