Summer Card Camp Week 3 Day 1 card number 2

Here is a second card I just whipped up after playing with the blues and purples with the shading on the new Delightful Dahlia Additions stamp set I just bought.  Fun.  I think this looks pretty neat, and I tied all the colors in together using sketch 3.  Photographing cards with rainy/cloudy daylight is pretty hard. Not a photographer either.  I am doing good to get a card made and put on the blog.  :)  My sentiment looks much sharper and crisp in real life.  I guess the camera focused on the flower and not the words.

What do you think?

Edited to add:  thank you for all your sweet comments.  I really struggle to come up with my own designs whether using a card sketch, color combo, or staring at a blank canvas.  I was really pleased with how this card turned out.
