Bold Flowers Card

I colored the flowers with just two Tombow Water-based markers.  One is light yellow and the other peach.  They look much darker when colored on the sand-colored cardstock.  

The above photo shows true colors, but the first photo shows the lovely golden shine of the Champagne embossing powder.
