Another Manic Monday

I'm a little late getting this posted today.  Going to work at 7:30 AM always throws a kink into my best laid plans.  But better late than  never, right?  My card today is one I'm not entirely sure about.  I'm posting it anyway to get your feedback on it.  I tend to think that it's too busy with the patterned paper and then the multi-layered, multi colored chipboard frames. It's definitely bulky, but I have never let that stop me before.


The image is a Unity image from the Livin' and Loving Life Store Set, available from i {heart} papers.  I thought it was such a sweet image with the couple hiding behind the umbrella stealing a private moment.
I stamped the image once on white cardstock and again on patterned paper so I could cut out and attach the umbrella for added dimension. The chipboard frames were painted with acrylic paint and attached with a combination of Zip-Dry and foam pop dots.

Ok, so be honest...did you have to shield your eyes and look away from the deluge of color and patterns?  Remember...I asked for honesty.
Thanks for looking in.

I think I really like it. There is a lot to look at, however it does not seem to take away from you very fun image. They are colored so beautifully and the way you have their umbrella popped up is super cute especially with the little pearl in the center. 2 thumbs up

I think it is a fun card! I love all of the bright colors, and somehow, you only glance at the colors and your eyes are immediately drawn to that wonderful Unity image! I would easily give it a 10! Great job!
