The opposite sketch

Do you remember the Nickelodeon program "You can't do that on television"? Remember how they used to do the opposite skit, where everyone would behave the opposite of the way they would normally act? Well, this card is my opposite take on this week's challenge sketch. I made the strip that goes across the whole card very narrow and the featured image very large. Still within the challenge rules (hey, it's fun when you get to make the rules) but I suppose not really faithful to the spirit of the challenge.

Oh well, here it is anyway. The base is blush blossom with the small snowflakes stamped in blush blossom across the top. The medium snowflakes are stamped in perfect plum on a strip of shimmery white card stock flamed by a strip of perfect plum and pale plum card stock. The large snowflake was colored with perfect plum and pale plum markers and stamped on shimmery white. I punched the corners with the designer label punch and matted the image on perfect plum. It's still shades of pink and purple, but it's so different from my other card. Where the other card was warm and cheerful, this one is more cool and reserved. I still like it though, What do you think?
