Oceans 11 Challenge - Sky

The challenge for my Oceans 11 blogger's was to use "sky" in the card.  Well I just it but I am having a block because I don't know why I should put it together.  So I figure I would just put it out there.

Any suggestions?

Very vibrant card. Your "sky" I think would represent the blue background. You did a great job!

I love your color choices!

So, this is like a puzzle? I would put the white bg with the stripes down 1/4 inches from the bottom, layer the gorgeous flowers on the blue sky over the top, but up higher with the top edge 1/4 inches from the top. It would overlap the bg but not totally.

Then, the ribbon and flowers would go parallel to the bottom about 1/2 inch from the bottom of the card. You might group the flowers some or just evenly space them.

Can't wait to see your final design!

How interesting to let your visitors "put it together!" That would make a fun way to do blog candy somehow.

Hmmm...I'd put the dp in the upper left corner, drop the blue/flower piece down and to the right of that leaving space along the left side of the image piece to make a vertical row of the flowers. I'd probably leave the ribbon off, since with "my" layout, I'm not sure where I'd put it. Oh, do show us your finished card!

This is so pretty. I love the vibrant blue. Great job...

I really love the blend of colors, it is such a bright and cheerful combo. I'm liking the layout the way you have it, maybe just group the flowers slightly different in a clump of 3?

I think that the blue is great for the 'sky'. It's behind the flowers, so that would count :)

Such a beautiful card! I love how the silhouettes are stamped in black.

What a vibrant card! I love the richness of the blue behind the flowers - is the ink sponged on, is it the regular color of the cardstock, or is the blue embossed? Either way - I think the hue is striking and makes the flowers "pop" that much more. I agree with both Siobhan and Diane's layout options (I'm not a great layer-outer, so I won't add one! LOL!) Can't wait to see the final results! Well done and fun to have your viewers add their 2 cents!

That blue is so vibrant! How pretty! And I think you're very close to the layout you want. The blue would go in the upper left corner, the flowers in a row of three on the bottom with a criss cross vertically and horizontally with the ribbon. I think it will be gorgeous.

This is not only colorful...but the design is awesome...Love it!

I would put the image straight...but this is totally personal. I like things lined up. I would overlap the flowers perhaps on the bottom right corner of the image. Just a couple of things...I have now forgotten what was there so cannot comment further.

Would be lovely to see what you finally do do with it.
