Paul's 40th Take 2

I kept going back to look at Paul's card from yesterday and just couldn't put my finger on what was wrong.  Then I got a fab constructive comment from Abi saying that the background was too white.  That's exactly what was wrong with it so I took it all apart and printed off another stripey digi paper, again from Summer Driggs and now I like it a whole lot better.

What do you think?

Actually I have to agree it is better, I can see now what was adrift, I honestly thought it was fine yesterday but now it zings with life & I can see why - I think the white would still work but you need the spacing of the second card with much more pattern showing, the mouse is actually better without the 4 on his nose! I didn't see that he was falling over backwards yesterday - much good I was giving my opinion; good job you stuck with your instinct. I much prefer today's embellishments too. Sorry not to have been much help yesterday, now this I really really like.
