Design in Progress

I am in a swap on SCS for a year of House Mouse. Each person in the swap chooses a month and makes cards for the others in the swap based on that month. I chose August specifically because I had this stamp and August makes me think of sunflowers. I know August is usually one of the last months to be chosen in these kinds of swaps so I thought I'd give the hostess a little break. :)

I think I'm pretty happy with the overall design. I know the ribbon is all wrong, but out of all the thousands of yards of ribbon I have (well - maybe that's a wee bit exaggerated :) I don't seem to have one that fits quite right. I think a brown or green with white polka dots might be the way to go. I thought maybe throwing in a splash of red might be good, but now that I see it, I'm not so sure.

I also haven't decided whether to keep the rounded corners or not. My original plan was to use my circle and scalloped circle Nesties, but the image is too big to fit right.

I'll wait a day or two and look at it again. Maybe something creative will come to mind.
