Shapes Overkill?

Today's sketch challenge on SCS looked like a fairly simple and fun layout. I was inspired to use almost amethyst and black after seeing a card that Sharon (notimetostamp) made. Somehow....I think I went a little nutsy with shapes. One circle led to two, then three, then I added the rectangle sentiment....hmmmm...not sure about this one. I do like the colors though and this new stamp I got this past weekend by Great Impressions.
