Sketch Saturday/Jewelry Inspiration

I've been trying to create different sized cards lately...small 3x3, square 4x4 and other sizes. Not every card needs to be the standard 4¼x5½. How many cards do you buy that are the same size???

So in a not so great attempt at a 4x4, I used the sketch that Sketch Saturday issued in their challenge on Saturday.

And as usual, I was thrilled when Stacey's Stamping Stage put out her latest Jewelry Inspiration Challenge! I love how she uses the colors from pieces of gorgeous jewelry as her inspiration!!!

I'm going to admit that I'm not crazy about my card. I think I made it too small for either the colors or the sketch. I'm not really sure why. Constructive criticism would be greatly appreciated!

I think the card looks "crowded". What do you think?

Friend to Friend card details:
Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes (SU!)
Patterned Paper: DSP - unknown (SU!)
Ink: Versamark, Rose Red, Kiwi Kiss (SU!)
Accessories: flowers (Prima), buttons, embossing powder, scallop circle punch (SU!)
I am taking constructive criticism. Please tell me what you think!

This is a really lovely card. You don't look like a beginner to me. I love the colours and the image :)

You're too critical of yourself - your card is wonderful. Love the bright colours - gorgeous
