fusion card challenge - shiny pink

It's my first time playing along with the Fusion Card Challenge.  I saw Kimberly's card and was blown away, so decided to put something together myself.  Here's my card.

Here's the photo inspiration and sketch.  Being a newbie, I just used the photo as inspiration.  Next time, I'll go for the fusion of the two.  Baby steps:)

I'm working on Hawaiian-theme cards for a co-worker to give to her friends that hosted her recent stay in Hawaii.  So, I stamped these lovely flowers and watercolored them in the hottest pink I had.  I even resisted the urge to color in the leaves green so that I could keep this card as pink as possible.  And, I ended up liking the uncolored leaves:)

As a nod to the photo inspirations shiny pink car, I added a touch of gold shimmery splatters.

Thanks for stopping by!

Stamps: Mama Elephant (Many Thanks); Mama Elephant + Simon Says Stamp (Summer Garden)
Inks: Derwent Inktense pencils; Tim Holtz Distress (picked raspberry); Versamark (onyx black)
Other: Wink of Stella brush pen (black, gold)
