Colored Pencils on Kraft - Fast Recovery

Good morning! I have been following along without any consistency with Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge, sometimes getting coloring in that goes with DT stuff I can't share, sometimes life is crazy and I don't get anything done, and sometimes I work on something like this for a few days here and there, and then get around to sharing it! Haha! 

For some reason I seem to struggle with using colored pencils. Or at least, being happy with the results. This is one of the first times I have truly liked the finished card! I twisted things up a bit by stamping theses lovely Altenew florals from Adore You on kraft cardstock, then slowly coloring them with my Chameleon Dual Tones Pencils - mostly in the car waiting for a daughter at music lessons or some such thing.

I then carefully fussy cut them out, and arranged them as you can see here, using Jennifer McGuire's Press-and-Seal technique to pick it up, add foam adhesive to the back, and then adhere on my Rustic White cardbase. I heat embossed a sentiment from Altenew's Heartfelt Sentiments in Platinum ink on black cardstock and added that, then filled the centers of the flowers with Glossy Accents to adhere some sparkling Pretty Pink Posh seed beads. I also added a few soft sequins and a few more seed beads around the flower cluster - although they are difficult to see in the photos. Finished off by rounding one corner of the card!

I'm also playing along with the current Altenew Challenge - the colors are a bit different, but I was inspired by the cluster of florals, and the kraft in the background inspired my stamping the flowers on kraft cardstock:
