Vine Flowers

Here's a card that I spent quite some time coloring on. I made 6 of these for the church ministry (Ladies' birthdays for December).

Stamps used (GinaK Designs):
The Vine
Sentiment: Enjoy the Sunshine
Since I made this also for the Spectrum Noir challenge (Flowers), I thought I'd show which markers I used from the Lights set:

I went over the CR6 pink on the top petals with GB1. It gave it a nice dappled look: 

I then went over the inside of the petals with CR6 again to shade darker. 
I'm also entering this into:
