Make it Monday, #127-Double Backgrounds (No.3)

For this card, I used a colour combination that is out of my comfort zone, and dug out some old stamps to pair with some newer stamps. Mat Stack #4 hasn't been inked in awhile, so I used it as a grounding mat. I made the flower from "Ruby Rose" stamps, which were stamped with Versamark ink, then heat embossed with clear powder. The background is using "Sheet Music" and "Fancy Flourishes", which I really like together. I used Sweet Blush ink, which is pretty light, so I hope you can see it in the photo. The sentiment is also from Mat Stack #4 stamps, and the die is from Tremendous Tags. All materials are from PTI, except the light pink paper, which is from my scraps.

Thanks for looking, and I always appreciate any comments! 
Have a great day!
