Embellish Fabric Colour Challenge

One of my favourite challenges that I love entering is that over at the Embellish Magazine.
This fortnight you need to work with fabric for your card! How cool! I of course don't have fabric laying around the place and short of going to buy some I asked Amanda (a wonderful fabric collector!!) for some pieces in red, green and blue.
I went with the green and made like a pleated skirt on the bottom, not too bad for a non-sewer!!Here is the inspiration picture...And here is my card...

I know that it seems a little.... well "bitty" some flourishes here, a bold ribbon there... but I really like how it's come up!! Do you think it works??
I added some spritzing at the end and wanted the greeting to be subtle by using Not quite navy again but noticeable by popping it out! Anyway I had fun, especially the sewing part! YAY!
Happy Saturday,

So good to hear that someone had fun creating a card, and yours turned out fabulous. For some reason, it makes me feel as though I'm at the lake on a summer day, with the green trees, and blue water/waves.
