Thank You/ Color Throwdown, CPS, Wee Memories

Guess what I did for the first time?  I stitched seam binding ruffles on my card.  I didn't even practice.  I just stuck it up there and away I went.  What do you think?  Turn out ok?  I was pleasantly surprised.  I am not a  risk taker so for me to just stitch on the actual card without practice was a huge risk!
I made the card for this weeks challenges at Color Throwdown , andCPS.  I loved these colors and had to play along. Also my blog friend Jenny at Wee Memories has a challenge for stitching on your card. 
*You can find this card in my Etsy Shop

Hi Heather. Your designs are sooo beautiful! I just had a look around your blog and you have such a natural ability for color and layout. Your color choices are perfect, I struggle with putting colors together. I love your use of the soft yellows and blues! I also can't wait for the new PTI release! I am addicted to their products!
