Color Challenged Tag

Here's my next tag for Joan's weekly tag challenge.  My order from Joan arrived yesterday, and included this gorgeous die, so and I decided to use that as the base for my tag.  Our Creative Corner is having a color challenge, to use an analogous color scheme.  I searched the web for a color wheel with more colors then went with the paler hues.  I cut the base from an old greeting card (has some shimmer), embossed and used a Copic marker to stencil the embossed areas while still in the die.  The lady silhouette is from a Marianne D die.  I made the flowers, they look so pretty IRL.  I highlighted/edged them with a Copic marker then sprayed the layers with Glimmer Mist before assembling them.  They have a pretty shimmer.  Leaves are Martha Stewart punch.  Strung some beads on some eyepins and attached behind the flower.  The picture is not the greatest, I seem to have issues with lighting that I can't overcome.
