Following the Whispers

I finally finished some cards I started a couple of weeks ago. I blogged about the cards here, but I wasn't really happy with the way they turned out, so ripped them apart and started again.
Whispers kept telling me - blue, add some blue. But my logical voice kept questioning - blue, you don't usually use blue- and rejecting the advice from the whisperer. Yesterday I finally listened to the whisper and added some touches of blue

and finally felt like the cards were coming together. I found some lovely brown crinkly paper to mount the art bits on, and smiled at the outcome.

For a few cards, I tore up bits and pieces of paper, added some fabric, and sewed them onto cardstock. Each of the art bits were then sewn onto the front of the cards.

Inside each card I sewed a piece of cardstock decorated with matching bits of paper and material.
Now that I followed the whisper that had been happening since I made the original cards I
feel like this project is completed as it was supposed to be. Next time I hear a whisper, I hope I follow it more quickly.
Another lesson learned.
