Fifth Avenue Flower...Finally

I wanted to try creating a card comprised of mostly neutral colours with just a pop of another colour and this is what I ended up with! It's not fabulous but it's not too bad either. I just feel like it needs more but I'm not sure what! I contemplated colouring the center circles in the flower brown but didn't end up because then I think that might overpower the flower itself.
I'm also considering stamping a sentiment in chocolate chip over the flower but I'm not sure which one to choose. Oh well, at least I finally played with this stamp set which I HAD to have when I saw it in the new catalogue.

Don't forget there is only one day left to enter for my blog candy here.


Stamps: SU Fifth Avenue Flower
