Amaryllis card (CPS#117)

I was asked to make a birthday card for a friend's Gran who is turning 95!! And she likes Amaryllis and pink. (The previous post shows the other option)
 Here's a close-up of the glossy accents on the flower:
 And a view of how the flower part is popped up with 3D dots. The bottom and left-hand leaf is glued to the bottom picture.
 I used CPS Sketch #117 below:
For the flower I went to my handy stand-by source of COLORING pictures! Here's the source:
I printed two out, one to cut out for the base and the other to color for the top layer. The bottom one is colored as well but just along the edges that will peek out underneath.

Stamps used:

Inks used:
Memento Tuxedo Black
Tim Holtz Spun Sugar

Other materials & tools:
Colleen and Stabilo coloring pencils
Spellbinders Circles small and Scalloped Circles small

Letack Craft Corner & Border Punch
Ranger Glossy Accents
Ribbons: (I layered a organza type ribbon over a cotton one)
