You know how you have those projects that sit around because they seem to be missing something (maybe you don't but I have a good sized "finish me" pile that every once in a while I wade through and see if the creative spark speaks to me)--keep playing, keep experimenting. My husband likes to remind me that whoever gets one of my cards won't know how long I labored to get it just right or that they won't see how maybe design-wise the card isn't perfect. They will just love the finished project and the sentiment behind it.
After I finished this card I decided to give it to my mom, cause she's the best!! Love you mom!
