RetroSketches with PIO Color challenge

I'm not sure if I can do the Pile it On challenge with just one other challenge, but I liked the colors, so I used them with the Retro Sketch. I cased the original card, because it was so pretty.

I created the background paper by stamping a border stamp several times in New England Ivy and filling in the circles with my Sweet Leaf, Topiary, Hollyhock, and Blush markers. I colored the seam binding ribbon with the Blush marker, and I love that it dried instantly! The Hollyhock flower was cut using the Art Philosophy cartridge. I came up with the idea to cut the leaves using 2 cuts from my circle punch. It made perfect leaves! The pearl was colored using the topiary marker.

Materials used:
Cardstock: Colonial White, Sweet Leaf, Hollyhock
Stamps: Dreamin' WOTG, Card Chatter - Love
Ink: New England Ivy
Markers: Topiary, Sweet Leaf, Hollyhock, Blush
Other: Color Ready Seam Binding Ribbon, Mocha Pearls
