With Love

Hi, I hope everyone is having a good day. Can I say I struggled with this color combination. I started making a second card to replace this one, but I'm a little persistent (nice way of saying stubborn), so I decided to continue with this one. Kristina's Color Inspiration Challenge #29 has the following colors. Boy, I love how these challenges get me out of my comfort zone!

I love that these colors work for a masculine-looking card. I still haven't made a dent in the amount of SU rub ons I have, so I decided to use one for the main image. I thought the rub-on looked a little plain, so I added rhinestones and a felt flower. Now, it looks like too much bling. Oh, well.
Thanks for looking!
