Card Concept Seize the Sketch

So I sat down today to try out a new challenge blog
called The Card Concept.  My style for this card is

Clean and Layered.

And I really liked the sketch at Seize the Sketch.
But once I sat down to create it didn't seem to come together for me.
Anyway, this first card is my entry into these challenges,
but the one below was another one I tried.


You see, this one below didn't seem to photograph well, and that
little flower embellishment just looks too vanilla compared to the other whites
in the card.  I could NOT get it to stop standing out, so I decided to try again, and the 
one above is my final card.


For seize the sketch, I changed up the star medallion to a banner.
It just seemed to work better with the heart banner.
For the card concept I started with red, because of the cute 
little red cabin in the inspiration photo, and decided to make a
Valentine's card.  I embossed the red card stock to 'add texture' for
the card concept, as well.


Most of the product on my card is from Stampin' Up! except for that cute heart banner from Basic Grey and the "us" sentiment sticker from Little Yellow Bicycle.
