A Long Odds Double Duty Card!

Happy Tuesday!  I have a card today that does double duty for two color challenges.  Normally, my double duty cards are for a sketch and a color challenge.  But this week the hostesses at Splitcoaststampers and CAS Colours & Sketches picked the EXACT SAME colors!  What are the odds of that?!  Well, my husband being the kind of guy he is, calculated it.  Since both challenges use Stampin' Up! colors it limits the color choices a bit but the odds are still a little over 124,000 to 1.  (I neglected to right down the exact number.)  Since it's Christmas and it was likely that the hostesses would choose a red and a green, he factored that in using the red and greens available and then one random color.  The odds were in the neighborhood of 2150 to 1.  Life is interesting with an engineer!

And now my card.
The colors:
The card is pretty straightforward.  The image is die cut from the colors of card stock and sponged with the coordinating to add depth.  I added a neutral - Soft Suede - for my pine cones.

The background is watercolored and splattered with the ink.  I popped the main flower off of the card using foam dots.
