Three Part Harmony

If you are ever stuck for an idea for a card, you can always fall back on a classic "recipe"
3 colours / 3 elements / 3 parts.
I've spoken about the power of three in my other posts on "Accenting on a Budget".
If you limit yourself to three colours, you really can't go too far wrong. In retrospect, most of my disasters are because I have tried to add too much. Again a good formula is to pick three colours similarly placed on the colour wheel, or two similar and an opposite for accent.
In this card, I have divided the space by three, used three colours and the three part quote was a happy co-incidence. I have used three elements; metal (pin), water (ribbon) and air (feather)
