CC209 Black Rose Artichokes

Today's card is for the color challenge over on SCS, to use basic black, rose red and always artichoke. While I use basic black and rose red quite often, it has been some time since I last used always artichoke. I do like the color, but it seems too dark, so I rarely reach for it. I do like how this color combo turned out, but had to add a rose red designer paper with some brighter colors in it.
I love this mushroom image, had to use it again. It is a digital image available at my etsy store, the Digital Stamp Oasis.
Image was printed on GP white 110lb as a wallet size with my HP inkjet printer. I colored it using prismacolor markers and copic markers. I sponged the edges with soft sky ink and added glitter to the butterfly and mushroom dots, and I also added stickles to the designer paper. To finish the card off, I added the black gingham ribbon, did some paper piercing on the scallop circle, and attached prima flowers with rhinestone brads.
Thanks so much for looking. Have a wonderful day.
