MFT Design Superstar: Clean and Simple entry

Sometimes it is easier to find ways to fill a card's space than it is to create a simple, yet striking, design.  For the My Favorite Things Design Superstar contest, I thought to play with my love of soft lavender with hints of its complement, yellow.  Initially, my thoughts were to cut these beautiful stitched flowers from white cardstock, but I grabbed a sheet of vellum by accident.  Quite serendipitous really!  I love the soft, delicate effect of the vellum on the card!  I puttied on some Nuvo Embellishment Mousse in Lilac Lavender and added touches in the flower centers in Lemon Sorbet.  I cut the Hello into a strip of simple white cardstock and foam mounted it in the center of the shimmery lavender.  I made a total of 8 flowers, but decided that only 4 seemed to do the trick!  I think the card is very delicate, feminine, and makes me smile.

I'd love to hear your thoughts on this design.  Do you think it is a keeper, too?
