Gerbera Daisy - Stamping 411 Color Inspiration 151

The colors Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzelberry, and Pumpkin used together can be a challenge, because each on their own are strong colors. This was the Color Inspiration Challenge 151 with Stamping 411 here.
It took a lot of thinking and experimenting, but in the end fell back on my love of flowers, because you do see those colors together in nature- the Gerbera Daisy being one of them.
Here is my card:

Stamps: Build a Blossom, You're a Gem
Inks: Tempting Turquoise, Pumpkin Pie, Daffodil Delight. Chalks - pumpkin pie, tempting turquoise used for the background). Markers- Rich Razzelberry, Pumpkin Pie
Papers: Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White, Rich Razzelberry, Vellum
Accessories: Create a Blossom Punch, Round Scallop Punch, 3/4" circle punch, Small Oval Punch, Framed Tulip Embossing Folder, Square Lattice Embossing Folder, Dazzling Diamonds, Vintage Brads (upon which Crystal Effects and Aqua glitter was applied)
Flower: 6 small petals were stamped with Daffodil Delight ink and punched out using the Create a Blossom punch.  The rounded end was snipped to create the daisy-like petal and then inked with Daffodil Delight and curled under with a Bone Folder.  The other end was colored using the Rich Razzelberry marker.  The middle of the flower was stamped with Rich Razzelberry, punched out with the 3/4" circle punch and applied to the flower with a dimensional.  Crystal Effects and dazzling diamonds applied.
The completed flower was applied to a vellum round scallop circle colored with pumpkin pie marker using a dimensional.  I snipped slightly between each vellum scallop and curled the edges up slightly.
The panel was made using vellum embossed with the Square Lattice embossing folder, matted with Tempting Turquoise.  A strip of Rich Razzelberry embossed with the Framed Tulip Embossing Folder was attached to each of the long ends.
The flowers were attached to this panel with dimensionals.
