Stampin' Up Everything Eleanor and Flower Shop card

Hi today's card is a combination of two of my very favorite stamp sets. The Flower shop stamp and Everything Eleanor stamp set. The Flower Shop stamp set is so versatile, you can make everyday cards, Wedding, Sympathy, or Birthday cards because the flowers vary so much. Once you stamp the flower image, the matching Pansy Punch makes it a breeze to punch out and create cards, tags or scrapbook pages. The Everything Eleanor stamp has a cute, swirly, fun stamp  that I just LOVE!!  So I combined these two sets, to make this card for two different challenges!   I guess it's a "Two-for Friday!" The challenges are a sketch design by Freshly Made Sketches (125) and a color combo by Create with Connie and Mary (CCMC292)

Does that look like a pretty good challenge?  So here's what I came up with.

What do you think? I like Summer Starfruit in small doses, like here it added a little pop of color that really needed.

Since I LOVE the swirly stamp from Everything Eleanor, I stamped it on the inside too. I think it just helps continue the theme to the inside. :)

On the inside of the  flowers, I layer Summer Starfruit, using the  small circles on the Cupcake Punch. I also added the Rhinestones to give it a little bling!! 

I think it turned out pretty cute. 

After thoughts:
I think the colors  (the Summer Starfruit) on this card could easily be changed up and it would still make a pretty card. I think this  color combination is subtle and reminds me of early spring.  (one can only hope that we are gonna see spring soon)  What do you think?
