Turquoise Vases - PPA217

Sometimes a card doesn't need any extra embellishments at all. I tried to add something extra to this card I did based on the sketch challenge at Pals Paper Arts, but between the colors in the image and the background DSP, it's already busy enough. The white space around the vases and the sentiment is much needed, but I find it looks nice and crisp. I love how the vases turned out, they make the image pop against the darker background colors.
