But it is only my ideas and of course you can add whatever you like to your designs and make them in your own unique way ... and as you progress you will develop your own style
I always tell you to enjoy what you are doing and relax about it.
Card making ... indeed any hobby ... should be enjoyable and fun.
And after all it is only card and paper so if you don't like it then you can easily start again.

Just move them around until you do ... and then glue them in place.
I use a heat gun to add my flowers and that way I know they will stay in place.
