Clean & Simple Embossed Card

Hello, dear friends.  I have been trying to get myself out of this crafting slump I'm in.  I don't know if it's something in the air or what, but several of my friends in the crafting world seem to be experiencing it also.  Today, I thought, okay I'm just going to make something simple.  This is the outcome but I really like the way it turned out.

I cut a card out using a Silhouette Cameo file called Scalloped Card.  This link will take you there.  Then I embossed it with the Anna Griffin Poppy Cuttlebug Folder.  These Anna Griffin folders are gorgeous.  I decided instead of adding a lot to it, which I would normally do, I would lightly color the leaves on it, not the flowers.  I used Tea Green for the leaves, then I added yellow stickles to the centers of the flowers.  Now all it needs is a pretty sentiment label which I will add when I send it out.  I think it would make a pretty sympathy card or birthday card.  Do you think it needs more?
