Joan's Challenge #5

Ever have one of those projects pictured in your head, but by the time you have it in paper it looks completely different?  That this card.  : )  The card base and vintage paper were cut from Grand Labels One (lovin' my Grand Calibur!).  I colored the image with combo of Copics and Prismacolor pencils. On the pink paper I stamped a flourish image with Versamark and embossed with clear EP. This is my card for Joan's weekly card challenge.  Keeping Joan and her family in my prayers, as they are going through a very difficult time.  

Challenges:
Joan's Gardens - Coral/pink & green, birthday sentiment, vintage paper, homemade flower.
Pixie Cottage - Sketch and/or buttons
Mark's Finest Papers - Self-made flowers.
Sweet Stampin Challenge - Spring flowers.

Stamps:  Rubbernecker Alexandra, Stampin Up sentiment.
Paper:  HOTP.
Ink:  Colorbox Queues.
Accessories:  Spellbinders, Handmade flowers, buttons, EP, leaf punch, Stickles.
