Amy's Sunday Sketch Challenge

Well, I was visiting Amy Westerman's blog today and I saw that she does a Sunday sketch challenge where she posts her own sketch and then you can make your own card using her sketch and post it to your blog. Since I wasn't getting anywhere with studying (are you sensing a theme here) I thought I would try one.
Matt thought I shouldn't have made all the flowers the same colors. He said that photographers are taking pictures they try to find ways to break the pattern and that I had too much of a pattern. What do you think? I may make another one taking Matt's recommendations into considerations and post that and we can see if he knows what he is talking about! He is always so patient and looks at every single card I make and ooohs and ahhhhhs appropriately.

For this card I used:
Paper: Designer paper from Chatterbox, morning marigold, old olive
ink: morning marigold, bashful blue, cranberry crisp, pumpkin pie
Stamps: bodacious bouquet from Stampin' up
Ribbon: all from SU, pale pastels from SU, ticket corner punches

I love it the way it is, but I also wouldn't mind seeing what he had in mind! Great job!

Love it, but give it a try with his ideas (it will make him feel good if anything:))! Thanks for playing!

Love the card! I think it might add more interest with more colors...however, if you hadn't said anything, I never would have noticed!
