CAS-Color challenge

This card is for a few challenges.  First the VC_Rocks challenge for the week to make a CAS (clean and simple) card using Poppy Parade, Concord Crush and Peach Parfait and also having either a flower,person or animal on it.  I chose to combine that with the 411 sketch challenge.  It was a great simple sketch this week.  You can view the sketch HERE.  Here is my card combining the challenges...

 The colors look a bit dark in the picture.  The base of the card is Concord Crush followed by Whisper White.  Then the three panels are all from the in color paper pad.  The flower is stamped on Whisper White, colored in with the Peach Parfait marker and highlighted with the Poppy Parade markers.  It is cut out by hand and layered on a jumbo scallop punch of Concord Crush.  The flower is from the Flower Fest stamp set.  The sentiment is from the Friends Jumbo Wheel.  I colored the words in with the markers and then punched them out using the Modern Label punch.  To finish it off I added a pearl to the center of the flower. 

You can also view the inside of the card.  The sentiment on the inside is from the Occasional Quotes set.  Hope you have a great day.
