I started by making 3 rectangles, slightly overlapped and removed the stroke and filled with complementary colors. Selected them all and did "blur" in Inkscape until I got what I wanted.
Added the flowers
It needed something else so I added white stroke around all the pieces to make the pop a bit more.
Made a pdf image and printed and mounted on cardstock with a little embossed border.
DH thought it a bit overkill with the border bits but it was all glued down and I was done.
A good learning experience and a pretty card.
All the elements for the image are in separate layers if you want to play in Inkscape. I did "place image" in eCal to cut the background pieces on my eclips and did P2C. I also made the inside in white with our birthday wishes and P2C that too.
