Is this flower powerful?

It's "card" week over at Try It on Tuesdays, and the theme is Flower Power.
I have LOADS of floral stamp images, but I wanted something more "in your face":D So I used a home decor sponge stamp I bought years ago to decorate my kitchen with(but we moved house before I got chance to use it)
I stamped and cut out 3 layers + centre piece, to make one mother of a sunflower :D

I wanted a swirly/flourishy (don't know the difference) background, sooo....

I used a die cut swirly/flourish and Tim Holtz distress inks to make one. (and yes, I have a bazillion paper crafting cd's that probably have something similar, but sometimes I just like getting messy;D).

Challenges I made this card for are;

Prairie Fairy Fridays#56 Swirls and Pearls (in centre of flower, coloured with promarkers)

and I also made it for a "pink and yellow" colour combi, but I've lost the challenge :S XXX

    my neighbor USED to scrapbook and has since had no time for it soooooooo, being the CLOSET CLEANER she is, i get her stuff - yay me!
