Carte Postale Color Challenge

I've seen the K. Werner Color Challenge for quite a few months, but I finally decided to participate today. Here's her color combination for the week:

Here's the card I made:

I stamped the rose onto watercolor paper and then painted it with a blender pen, then I used the versamarker to add ink exactly where I wanted to apply embossing powder. I added a layer of clear embossing powder, and then highlighted some areas with glassy glaze embossing powder.
If you look closely, you'll see the edge of the whisper white card stock gently rolled around the old olive card stock, which has some faux-stitching running along its edge.

Here's a close-up of the embellishments:
