Color Cue Thank you

Well, it is Thursday and I am just now getting on here to post something.  I needed a few more thank you cards and I so love Wplus9 that I decided to participate in the color cue challenge.  Wow, what a challenge it was for me.

I chose Aqua Mist, Harvest Gold, Pure Poppy and White. 
I wanted to use Vintage cream but apparently it doesn't show well on Harvest gold so I went with what worked.
I didn't like how this card came out, I will be honest.  I think it had a lot more to do with the bold colors in the challenge.  Also, I had the aqua mist in the frame background but that was it and it was bothering me.  I couldn't figure out what to do because I didn't have any ribbon.  I really need to work on changing that fact but it is so hard to keep up with everything.
This is when I realized I could cut some cardstock and make it into some ribbon.  After added just that little detail on both sides of the main image I enjoy the card more.
I already have a recipient for this card so it will be in the mail as soon as I remember to get some stamps  :)

Thanks for playing along at Wplus9!
