Raspberry Suite Color Challenge

I wanted to make a quick card for Dawn's latest challenge. I've been crazy about light blue and yellow so I thought I could just whip this out... um wrong. This took forever, really.

Here are the colors:

 And here's my card:

 
I really wanted my flowers to be softer than they were when stamp in brown, so I stamped them in cream, colored in the portions I wanted and drew in the stems. I actually really like the hand drawn effect. Here's a closer look!

Check back on Friday for a new EBTKS challenge!
