Hello Doily Emboss Resist

I've been playing around with the new background stamp Hello Doily.  Its a very pretty stamp but I've been struggling a little to come up with designs I really like.  This card turned out okay.  I like the embossed doily and the color combo.  I think the composition still needs a little work.  My colors are Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Whisper White.  I stamped the doily in Versamark and then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  Then I sponged Island Indigo ink over the top.  The embossing resists the ink and only colors the cardstock.  My sentiment is from the set You're a Gem.  I added a little ruffled ribbon along the bottom.  I think its the ribbon that's throwing off the design.  Maybe I should have left that off.  I added a new polka dot brad to the center of my doily.  I hope I like my next card with this stamp more.  Sometimes I buy a stamp that I really like but it just never clicks for me.  I hope that doesn't happen with this stamp!  Thanks for stopping by.
