A Little Help Please

I was out cruisin' the blog scene this morning looking for some inspiration and I came across a card layout that I liked on Beate's blog from an old sketch challenge she did. She has some really beautiful cards, check out her site sometime!
Anyway, I decided to see what I do with the layout design to make my holiday cards for this year. I've been procrastinating quite a bit and need to get going!
I just got my order of Wintergreen DSP and wanted to be able to use it to avoid having to do a lot of stamping. I need to make about 40 cards and with 2 small children, there's not always a lot of time to get things done!

So, this is what I came up with. I think I might make some minor changes, like adding more Blue Bayou CS and layering the ovals, but other that I'm not sure what else to do or if I should just leave it alone.
I'd love to hear what you all think. Any suggestions or comments would be great! :)

It looks good how it is but if you wanted to layer the oval it would give it a different look

I like it as is! I love that sketch & color combo! Glad to hear that someone else is behind too! :-)

Hello--I love it. I can't make it bigger to see detail, but i think it's great. And it always nice when you're doing a lot of cards to have a white base color saves $$ and cuts a little quicker. Is there glitter on it?? I couldn't tell, when in doubt i always add some dazz diamonds!!

I personally love it....but if you want to make it pop a little more, I would change the order of layers......put your darkest blue last, because your lighter blue is getting lost, and yes I would layer the ovals. I love the colors and layout!! It is a really great card!

This is so pretty and soft. I really like it. I could not imaging cutting and pasting all of those layers for 40 cards, but they would be pretty. I cannot wait to see what you decide to do. Your work is really crisp and pretty. I like it. Glad we are in SBS3 together. I cannot wait to see what you have next.

Beautiful Christmas card!! I love the color combo & all of the layering! I think the card looks great as it is but if you did want to change it up a bit I would add a touch more of the blue bayou. TFS!!
I look forward to seeing more of your creations!!
