It's A Color Throwdown Challenge

Every week over at The Color Throwdown, an inspiration full of lovely colors is presented. The challenge is to use these colors on a card and link it to the party. This week's inspiration are the vibrant colors in this sweet pinchusion:

This is the first time I have entered a color throwdown, and it is
not as easy as one might think!
The Color Throwdown Designers each create a wonderful card to
get us started in the right direction, then the rest is up to us!

Here's my card:

First, I stamped one of my favorite go-to sentiments by Hero Arts
on the card stock in Adirondack Espresso.
I found matching ribbon in three of the colors and ran that around to the back. 
I cut a tag from a Sizzix die cut and using the opposite side of the same ribbon,
adhered them to the back side of the tag.
The Prima flower repeated the fourth color. 
I used dimensional tape to pop up the tag and added some bling.

What do you think--too much white space?
I'm not really in love with it but it will have to do for a Friday afternoon.
