KW’s Colour Challenge 16 – I heart friends

Yep, it's that time again for Kristina's colour challenge. Here's the challenge pic – soooo cute! The colours are soft sky, certainly celery, very vanilla & pumpkin pie. And here's my attempt.
I like the colour combination (OK, I was a bit scared of the pumpkin), but I found this card more difficult than I thought it would be. I'm happy with the card, but not loving it, if you know what I mean!

I should also be making dinner right now so now time to waffle. Just wanted to say that the base is textured soft sky (trust me, it's yummy IRL), I hand cut the hearts, the scallops are ¼ inch circles (I got the idea from this card of Kristina's). The stamped & base hearts are raised on dimensionals. I glittered the 'Priceless' butterflies (& me) with dazzling diamonds glitter. For the friend greeting, I used a brand spanking new styled silver hodgepodge frame (coming in the Spring Mini). Here's a closer pic of the layers.

Anyway, hope you like it. Definitely off to make dinner now! If I have time later, I'll try for a better pic.
Edited: I've changed the main pic. I think it's a bit better now.

PS: I do love love love Kellie's challenge cards from this week, so if you haven't seen them yet, check them out here.
