WHICH IS BETTER?

For this project, I used the Cricut to not only cut the milk carton but to also DRAW the black accent (from the "Accent Essentials" cartridge) onto the card stock! How stinkin' cool is that?????? I've had the Cricut Colors (markers) ever since I bought my machine over a year ago, but I've never had the nerve to try them until Sunday. Of course, now I think I "need" more colors! Since the black images were all lined up in a row, I stamped the red "bursts" to try to break up the overall design and add a splash of color to the white space. The flowers were also cut with the Cricut (using the "Walk in my Garden" cartridge), and I used one of SU's new clear rhinestone brads for the center. I need your help, though. When I was getting ready to take a picture of this project, I picked up the white swirly accent (cut with the Big Shot and Sizzix Decorative Accents #2 die) that was just laying there, but I can't decide if it's a good addition to the box. What do you think? Should I adhere the accent permanently or leave it off?

Nope, leave it off, Regina. First time I looked at it, I thought it was a cat's tail. lol

LOL! A cat's tail, huh? I can see that! It was, after all, a totally unplanned addition. I think it would actually look better if it was adhered under the flower and more in line w/the box. Then again, maybe it's just wrong! ;-)
