Compose a Card challenge 5

Okay so I'm a day late, but that's okay, I was really intrigued by this color combination and I think polka dots make life happier. :) So I tried my hand at a card for Becky Oehler's last challenge. Yup, the new one is posted, you should go check it out here.

So I used Autumn Blessings, because I thought the flowers might look cheery in red with an aqua-ish sort of vase. I have trouble coloring these flowers but I think I'm getting better. Copics are challenging! One day I'll take a class. So, I also used polka dot background red on white and white embossed on red. I needed a get well card and this did come together pretty quickly.

Stamps: PTI Autumn Blessings, Polka Dots
Ink: black stazon, Pure Poppy, white craft
Cardstock: Pure Poppy, white, Aqua Mist
Other: white ribbon, copics, embossing powder
