Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9

I took the time that I should have been napping today (while Carver napped) to make a card for Dawn's latest challenge. I figured I needed to get started on my Father's Day cards and thought that these colors would work for one of them. Nothing real fancy since it is a man card. I wanted to add a little something more to it so I used an SU Mini Library Clip and a punched heart. I wrote "Pa", since that is what I call my grandfather, on the heart. I can remove it and don't know which way I like it. Any comments on which one I should go with?

I added the buttons and then decided that I didn't like them where they were. Unfortunately, when I tried to remove one of the buttons, the paper started to come up with the glue dot so I had to leave them as they were. Oh well! I will know next time to make sure I like the placement before I glue dot them down! :-) I was in a hurry since I wasn't sure how long nap time would be.

Stamps - Faux Ribbon, Polka Dot Basics (both PTI), All Holidays (SU)
Paper - New Leaf, True Black, Vintage Cream (all PTI)
Ink - True Black (PTI)
Other - Nestabilities Labels One, PTI True Black Buttons, SU Mini Library Clip, Heart Punch

Tee Hee - you make me giggle with your indecisiveness - I'm exactly the same! Only when the paper's torn am I stuck with a decision! I think your cards lovely btw, fab layout and you should definitely keep the 'Pa' heart!

Cute and I totally get it when you talk about "where do I put stuff!!" I can never make a decision ......should the ribbon go here or there, buttons up top or down below.....cardmaking is a stressful job! lol!
