PW June Sketch Challenge

Today's card was created from the sketch for the June sketch challenge on the Paper Wishes message board.  In addition to following the sketch, I also wanted to use up stash, so most elements of this card - included the printed card base - are things I've had in my stash for awhile.

For those of you interested in a peak inside my artistic process, I decided to show you the first couple of tries at this card before I got what I liked. The first attempt looked like this:

This version felt a bit top heavy.  I had 3 flowers (following the rule of 3's) but they didn't flow well.  The bottom one seemed too small and the top too were too close together for the size they were.  I thought maybe I could swap a couple of them to get a better look:

In some ways this looked better, but the small flower still seemed a bit small and I missed the pink the others had.  Then I decided to add a couple of ribbons and ended up with my final version at the top of this post.
