PKS Challenge 57

I created this card for the Peachy Keen Stamps challenge #57.  This one has a bit of a twist on it.  We were given a sketch to follow and a color combination that we had to use.  HERE are the details for the challenge. 


This is not my usual color choices but I really enjoyed putting these together.  

I did use the colors in the challenge, but as usual, my photography skills do no justice for the colors.  I began by embossing the flowers with black embossing powder onto some cardstock vellum.  I then used a copic marker for the coral colored flower.  However, I quickly realized that copics don't do well with vellum and embossing powder.  For the green, I used a certainly celery SU! marker and colored the flower.  I then took the new SU! color pool party and sponged the entire back of the vellum.  I then backed it with white card stock and then placed it on a coral card base.  If you have any questions, please let me know!  Thanks for looking!
