ColourQ and CAS-ual Fridays

I made a "round of applause" card for CAS-ual Fridays. It's a pun, see, because we're supposed to use something "round" on our card and make it a "you did it" type of card. I took a little inspiration from design team member, Kimberly, and stamped my "congratulations" around the outside of a big circle. Then I put the "Bravo" in the middle. The colors are from ColourQ, which I interpreted into CTMH colors as Cotton Candy, Cranberry, Grey Wool, and Honey. Here is my card:

I used our alcohol marker sets to color in the roses. First I colored in all the sections with the lightest marker. Then I took the dark marker and shaded the shadowed areas. Then I blended the shaded areas into the lighter areas with the light marker. After I did that, it looked like stripes on the petals. So I took my light marker and colored in the entire flower one more time, just to blend it all together. The insides are colored with 2 coats of honey.
Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White, Grey Wool
Stamps: Kudos from Artiste, Card Word Puzzle
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (not CTMH)
Markers Sets: Cranberry, Cotton Candy, Honey
Other: Sparkles Brown and Tan, Garden Wooden Shapes
