Honesty thread: If you don't have Itty Bitty Backgrounds - buy them! The speckles would look great around the image to really dress it up. I'd also add one more layer under the image but then I'm a layer freak!
I absolutely love that sentiment and it's border.

BH Thread - Okay, I think there is too much "white space" in this case green space in the background. I would add a layer of darker green (hunter or avacado) across the back of the card. It would be a stip of about 1 or 2 inches high and it would go all the way across the card. Part of your flower image would be over it and part of your thanks image would be over it...more of a collage effect. I agree about coloring in the flower with soft colors...yellow or pink. I love this set, but it is a tough one to use.

Honesty: I think all the suggestions are great! The card as is, is great. I think I agree with Emily the most. Nothing makes things pop like a black layer.

Brutally honest: I really love the colours but would keep the emphasis on the flower by adding another layer underneath and reducing the layers on the Thank you - and perhaps trimming the foliage border off the thank you. But then I do love simple!
