A Flower For A Friend

This is for today's COLOR CHALLENGE # 311 - Always Perfect Roses. This was a hard color combo for me and I started this card at 6am, refused to upload and had to get to work at 7am so when I got home I did some alterations and while I am still NOT thrilled with it I do like it much better than it started out.
My layout is from today's TUESDAY MORNING SKETCHES # 82.
I love the layout just not really thrilled with MY end results. I colored the primas with my SU Markers after my copics just did not match the colors I was going for. My rose red flower turned out looking almost red/orange in my photo, YUK.
The SU Markers do not color as well but at least the colors are closer. I punched some leafs in always artichoke.
I colored some white satin ribbon to match rose red and had some green that was a close match to artichoke and tied the 2 on some perfect plum cs then added some tiny gems,
Paper: White, rose red pattern paper, perfect plum, always artichoke
Ink: rose red, perfect plum, always artichoke
Accessories: gems, ribbon, leaf punch, primas
