I've been staring at this card for 2 weeks, it still needs something but I'm not sure what...so please let me know your suggestions!
I used floral background on the Old Olive and used Jen70's technique for long cards and background stamps. I cuttlebugged the regal rose and created the scalloped border with my slit punch. I used a scalledop square punch in Apricot Appeal stamped with Filagree to creat the photo corners. I pierced each scallop on the scalloped border and photo corners. This was also my first attempt at watercoloring using water color crayons.
So all you wonderful and talented ladies fire away! Please!
Oh by the way, the ribbon isn't that wonky it was windy on the deck.

All of these elements are lovely! The thing that strikes me is that the main focal point image is a little large in scale for the card itself. If you trimmed it a bit smaller and moved it a bit to one side or the other, I think that would help the layout a lot. Everything is beautiful, though.

I agree with several of the comments ... I would trim the image slightly smaller, so you had more of a border of green on the top and bottom and add a lengthwise ribbon with knot on the right or left of the image ... or you could leave it just like it is ... very pretty.
