Embrace the imperfections
I wasn't going to post this card, as I'm not sure if I like it or not. It has the wrong kind of white space... It's also the subtle colours, I think it looks a bit drained. I deal better with bright colours (something very pink is coming your way soon...). But it did grow on me a bit, so I thought what the heck, let's just put it out there. It's all about embracing the imperfections and finding something good in everything. I do like the colouring of the flower.
The inspiration for this card was the same sketch as yesterday's card over at Stampin' Royalty. As I already submitted one card over there, I won't submit this one. The colours are from the Colour Me...! challenge, I will submit the card for that challenge.
