Hambo Stamps Bailey Flower

I have a fun card to share today for this weeks Hambo Hoedown.
This cute image called Bailey Flower was in my inbox Tuesday evening and I had to wait to see what  the challenge was going to be until Wednesday morning.  Sometimes it's hard to wait!

The challenge is to use Purple, Orange and Hot Pink together - 

I don't think I've tried this color combination yet and really had fun with it.  I used Splitcoast Stampers sketch #377 for my card layout.  I actually made the card body first and matched Bailey to it, backwards but fun.  The papers are Via Vellum Basic Black & Violet, Stampin' Up! Pixie Pink, Basic Grey Lime Rickey & Marrakech patterned papers combined.  I used the Spellbinders Long Narrow Ovals and Scalloped Ovals dies, a little Stickles covered in Glossy Accents and added a black half pearl to the flower center before it all dried.  The Copic markers I used are YG01, YG03, YG63, YG67, RV00, RV02, RV04, E40, E41, E43, E44, Y21, Y26, V12, V15, V17, YR04, YR07, YR09, YR30, YR31.  I wanted the background to have a yellowish glow to match the patterned paper so I used YR30 & YR31.

I also wanted to use one of the sentiments that comes with this cute set but wasn't sure where to put it with the sketch.  I decided it would fit on the flower pot after giving it a transparent background using Photoshop Elements.  

I'm intimidated by Copic Violets, Blue Violets and Red Violet, this challenge gave me the opportunity to experiment a little more on a very small scale.

I could also totally relate to today's Hambo Stamps image, Maxine has been pulling up some of my Stevia plants out in the garden.  I've been able to rescue them, clean them up and quickly dehydrate them. 
She looks a little guilty don't you think?

Oh!  One more thing...  Hambo Stamps is having a design team call!
