Sketch and Stash Challenge #2

I had to make a card for a wedding acceptance this week. I was at a total loss as to what to do. Usually I take the colours from the wedding colours but this bride is not having any bridesmaids! Anyway, I decided to start with the image and work from there. I have only just purchased Sassy Stems after admiring many creations made using it for months. When I chose this image I knew that the flowers had to be red (Rose Red), the vase blue (Brilliant Blue) and the stems green (Garden Green) - of course. The rest just flowed from there.

I used this weeks Sketch and Stash Challenge card layout - I just made a mirror image.

I didn't have an appropriate sentiment for an acceptance but decided that Thanks (this one from Live Your Dreams) was close enough.

I hope that my friends like this card. I'm not really sure. What do you think?
