Pink with Raspberry and Burgundy

My card today is CASEd from Susan Raihala's "monochromatic success" card on her Simplicity blog.  I changed her colors and some of her elements, but followed her idea to use many different textures and shapes in a monochromatic color scheme.  Thanks, Susan, for all your inspiration!

Card details:
  • Card stock is Papertrey Ink (PTI) sweet blush (pale pink base), raspberry fizz, and scarlet jewel (burgundy leaves and flower center). 
  • Dies are PTI limitless layers 2-1/4" oval (lace-edged oval, cut into pieces and lined up to a 3/4" strip of the same color card stock),  PTI buttoned up #2 (smallest button for flower center), and Memory Box tender leaves (smallest and largest leaf dies.)  
  • Ribbon is 5/8" sheer-and-satin, colored with RV10 Copic marker.  The bottom edge of the ribbon conceals the edge where I lined up my oval pieces to the strip above them.  
  • There is a strand of DMC #3804 embroidery floss along the center of the ribbon.  I used the same floss for the flower center.
  • The flower is a white paper Prima flower (confetti cake, may be discontinued) colored with Copic markers RV000, RV06, RV10, R00, and R56.
  • Embossing folder is Craft Concepts solid stars
