Believe Love MMSC

Good Morning!

I finally got a chance to work on yesterday's MMSC around 4:00 yesterday. I also combined it with yesterday's SCS color challenge to use Cameo Coral, Bravo Burgundy, Artichoke and Vanilla. I have to be honest, this is probably one of my least favorite cards. I had a hard time with the colors. I really don't care too much for the coral and the burgundy together. I only had one scrap piece of Always Artichoke paper, so I decided to make a ditressed textured background that highlighted the color instead. It's been a while since I've made one of these backgrounds, and it seems to work well for this card. I also had a hard time with this sketch, I couldn't decide what to put in the center oval. I finally decided to use one of the flowers from the Fifth Ave Floral Set. I stamped it with Burgundy ink and then used watercolor crayons and my aquapainters to fill it it in. I realized after I stamped it, that it wasn't quite enough to fill the oval and that it looked a bit blank, so I added the copper eyelets on each side. The "believe" and "love" sentiments are from the Heidi Grace set "Reagan's Closet".
Anyhow, as I said, not the best in my stash; but perhaps I'm being too critical...what do you think? I would love to know.
Have a great day, everyone!
