Brutal Honesty thread (can't believe I'm doing this :)). I love the colors, but I would mat the blue onto a neutral color card - so that there is another color to draw out the colors. I'd also mount a little corner of color on the folded portion so that detail pops (like a little purple triangle). And a different color ribbon - again to make the nice detail really pop.

Honestly...I agree about the ribbon. It's just hanging out there on the side. I'd try a wider ribbon, maybe in the purple. I like the corner!

Honesty: I think it needs to be brighter. I would stamp the background flowers in Taken with Teal, and instead of Eggplant, maybe Regal Rose? Like the others idea about ribbon. Love the corner treatment!

honesty.... Definately a darker ribbon and maybe use the eggplant envy ink for the background stamp instead of versamark. That may blend the two colors together better! I, too, am LOVING the corner! Great touch!

honesty thread: I think this is super cute! I agree that a bigger ribbon, probably purple in color would make it pop a bit more... you also (if you have a turquoise marker, could color in either a few of the streamers or confetti in the main image stamp? to tie the two colors in more) GREAT card!
