To greet or not to greet..........

that is the question!

Shall I leave this card as it is, or should I add a greeting on the front? And if I add a greeting, where will I put it?

Background is K and Co paper matted onto green card then mounted onto cream cardstock and the script folder was done using Coredinations Whitewash paper ( this is scrummy stuff!!) which I then sanded to bring the pale green colour through and then mounted onto the same green card backing.

I am not a big user/lover of stickers but these are from Penny Black and I like them a lot - I bought 3 sheets of these so don't be surprised if the next few cards are made from these - New Year's Rezzie.... use up some stash instead of looking at it!!!! LOL I added a tiny watering can embellishment to the main image after again layering it onto the green card.

Fortunately I am into card making mode at the mo - I'm again trying to raise some cash for Breast Cancer this year and my bowling friends are a generous lot and they buy my cards, so I need to get properly stocked up before the outdoor season begins! (I also must say a big thank you to Maureen who keeps sending/giving me masses of gorgeous cards for my charity ...trouble is , I like her cards so much I don't want to let them go! LOL)

Any suggestions as to greet or not welcome!
I have entered this into the ABC Challenge blog this week whose theme is layering.

I would leave it as it is. It is a beautiful card - the colours are so muted. You could always stamp something on another piece of card and pop it about on the front to see if it looks ok.

Beautiful card, the script embossed piece goes really well! I always have that debate about adding a sentiment. I often don't put one on until I find a need for the card and then put one on as appropriate.

The card is just beautiful as it is. It looks complete. I am not sure if any further additions would not destroy this picture. Petra. xx

Lovely as it is but you could try Neet's suggestion.

Just beautiful Viv. I'd leave it without a greeting and if you want one when you send it, add it then.

Would you like some more cards to sell for your Breast Cancer charity? If yes, what sells well?

Very pretty, Viv! Love the soft colors and the way you put together the whole design!

It has a lot of words already in the desings - adding more wouldn't improve it at all.
