This card is an interesting idea! I like the way the flower is definitely the central focus piece. It gives it varied texture and elevates the flower from the background. I think I might try this flower with various shades of pinks along with different textures with each ring and then lighten the background. I love the way the artisan has juxtaposed the graphic lines of the washi tape to the softness of the flower. Nice work!
