Soft Summer and Oval All Thank You

Good Morning Everyone,
I know, I know it's been awhile. I've just been so busy and dealing with a few health issues. Hopefully we've got it under control now.

I wanted to share a card I did's for an upcoming class and possible a swap I'm in.
I used two of the sets from our new Occasions Mimi to be released on the 1st of April. I'm sure many of you have gotten your Mini's already.
I used the Soft Summer Stamp Set #113802 for $23.95, I also used the new Oval Scallop Punch #114889 for $15.95 and the Oval All Set #113790 for $16.95. These are some great new releases coming to you soon.
The base of the card is Black and I coupled it with Blush Blossom. I wanted to keep it soft yet dramatic. i used the Bleaching technique and then added just a bit of color to the Dogwood Flowers, leaves and branch. Almost forgot I did use one of my all time favorite sets and that's the "Itty Bitty" set which is the little specks on the card.
I'd love to get your input on this card and let me know if you think it's swap worthy....I'm thinking of changing the knotted bows to the other side if i keep the oval on the left. What do you think?
As always....have a Stampinglee Good Day!

I really, really like this! It is great just the way it is, but what if the bows were on the right, up a little higher, and the oval stayed on the left and was moved more into the corner? Then there would be a diagonal movement .... Very nice card ... hope it's ok to steal some inspiration!

Lee, this is a beautiful card! I was a definite on the scallop oval, now I'm a definite on the stamp set too!
