Cherry blossom

I saw some wonderful pictures of cherry blossom in Japan (the pictures were in Japan, I wasn't) and they inspired this card. I hope it looks like a Japanese screen or painting. (I know I'm dreaming).
 The colours are Adirondaks Mountain Rose, Meadow and Latte and some gold pen, which I think ( I hope) counts as brown, so fits the Three Colours or Three shades of one colour at Less is More this week.
 I made this card first and stamped and embossed the words directly onto the card and then wasn't happy so added the tag on top. I still don't think it is quite right.  However the background is a little paler which I think is good. I'd appreciate any tips on adding sentiments as I don't think I'm very good at it and often don't write anything at all on the front of a card.
I gave it to my Mum and Dad for their 52nd wedding anniversary and, needless to say, they liked it! Let me know what you think. I've still got a lot to learn.
