More Marigolds

I have been playing like crazy with this Marvelous Marigolds stamp set from a*muse studio - it's been a long time since I played with bold images.  I have now a ton of background papers, and clear embossing powder all over my kitchen.  I even managed to get some caught up in my tape gun.  I did, however, want to get a complete card finished, and resorted to some techniques I haven't used in a while.
This uses the Penciled Twinks technique to color the focal flower (yes, it sparkles!).  the gold background paper uses tone on tone stamping, and for the green background paper, I clear embossed the leaves on the background.  This set (and marigolds in general) seem to want to be in autumn colors, but I really wanted a little bit of spring brightness in my palette.  I made this card for the following challenges:

This is a great spring card. It really says spring whether or not the flower wants to be fall colored. I like the idea of embossing on the plain paper, I never think of that. Thanks for an idea.
