This card was a problem child! It has beautiful My Mind's Eye Sunshine paper, beautiful Wild Orchid Craft roses and a cute image. I just had a really hard time making it work. I still don't know if it dies. I've just stared at it and fiddled with it for so long today that I think I am used to it. Ya know, a mother's love kinda thing? 
I think my problem is that I wanted it to fit too many challenges! Saturated Canary wanted "B's" (Belle, blooms, butterflies), Cupcake Craft Challenge wanted gold and script (the dp, but I covered most of it, and gold: Eiffel tower stamp), and others wanted Autumn hues which I am not fond of working with (that's why I have the pop of aqua), etc!
I definitely need to get some more WOC flowers, too, and in colors other than white!

Oh, well! Like I said, it's grown on me! I hope it grows on you all, too! And if it hasn't, you need to keep staring at it :)

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
