CAS(E) this Sketch #73...Big Red Flower

It is definitely Spring here in Virginia!!  I have been busy redoing the landscape in the front of our house...it has been real work and taken ALOT of my time, but I finally finished yesterday, and hurriedly made a card to enter the challenge at CAS(E) this Sketch!  Here's my card and the sketch...
This has been a two week challenge, CAS(E) this Sketch combined their sketch and challenge with Runway Inspired Challenge...so I will be entering my card in their challenge, too:)...
OK...I found a patterned piece of paper from Michael's for the patterned material of the model's pants and a red flower to go with both challenges.  My gray went darker, my flower's center went yellow I "wanted" blue, tried black...yellow just made ME happy...and at the end of the day, and it WAS the end of the day, yellow was the color:)!!  I used a darker red for the flower's outline, a much lighter red for the centers.  The outline is layered 4...yes 4 times...and a traced and cut out flower on the bottom with adhesive to make certain the centers of the petal stay put! 
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
