Painted Flowers

Today's card combines challenges from two different sources - Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge and CAS Colours and Sketches Sketch challenge.  The colors at Splitcoast Stampers this week are very close to the colors from last week's color challenge at CC&S.
Here is the sketch:
The colors are Pineapple Punch, Granny Apple Green, Balmy Blue and Rich Razzleberry.

I used a curved scallop die instead of a straight one (I don't have a straight one) and a stamp set that I've had for some time but have never used.  A NBUS (never been used stamp) is the dessert option this week at SCS.  This Alenew set is beautiful but it took me some time to really figure it out in terms of lining up the images.  Thankfully, the style is loose so precision in alignment isn't necessary!  Instead of using two colors for the flowers I opted to stamp off the first layer and stamp the second layer full strength.  I tried using the berry over the yellow but did not like the look.  I also stamped off the green to make it lighter.
To add my touch of Razzleberry I decided upon a single glitter enamel dot.  I thought the green, yellow and blue were so pretty together I didn't want to overpower it with the berry.
