This is a really pretty color combo and the sketch is so versatile that turning into a more gender neutral thank you card was easy. I forced myself to flip it too. Sometimes I find if settle on one or two set parameters (in this case... not feminine and the sketch in a horizontal position) before I begin it helps me to solidify a design more easily while still leaving room for creativity.
Here is the sketch and color palette. My Favorite Things posts a new sketch on their blog each Wednesday and the Color Throwdown Challenges run from Wednesday to Monday. Both blogs have great Design Teams with tons of inspiration to get you started.
