Elements of Style - for You - Color Challenge with Stampin' Fun and Friends

As you are aware, I am a designer on the Stampin' Fun and Friends site, and this week there is a color challenge for both designers and members.
The colors:  Baja breeze, Island Indigo, and Lucky Limeade.
Here is my card:

Base card is Baja Breeze card stock, layered with Whisper White embossed with the Chevron folder.  All edges are sponged with Island Indigo ink.

Designer Paper Panel:
A strip of Twitterpated Designer paper was layered onto Baja Breeze card stock that had been scallop punched at both long edges.  Again all edges were sponged with Island Indigo Ink.  Two pieces of Lucky Limeade ruffled ribbon were attached to the designer paper.
The entire unit was attached to the embossed Whisper white card stock just slightly off center.

The floral image from Elements of Style was stamped with Black Stazon ink on Whisper White card stock and colored with Baja Breeze markers,  highlighting with an Island Indigo marker.  Blending was done using a blender pen.  The leaves were colored with a Lucky Limeade marker, with shading done with Baja breeze marker and a blender pen.  Some dazzling diamonds was put in the center of the flowers. Before matting onto the colored card stock, I used the mat pack & paper piercer to pierce a half diamond in the top 2 corners.
The image panel was matted first with a Baja Breeze layer and then an Island Indigo layer.
This was attached to the front of the card using dimensionals.
