First Doodle This Card

I'm not sure how I feel about this card, but sometimes with a new set it's just a matter of getting the first card out of the way. I do like the colors of the card...

Also, the first picture doesn't show it (so I just stopped and took another picture), but the flowers are double-layered with the edges slightly curled up. The leaves are from the flower stamped in green and then cut out. Both the flower and petals were stamped in a darker shade of ink than their cardstock base for more contrast. The background swirls were stamped in Versamark ink for less contrast. The doodling around the edges (not very imaginatively done, I'm afraid) is in turquoise which is a step down in color from the teal.
Thanks for looking and if you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them!
