Pretty in Vellum!

Today is the launch of Challenge #58 - Vellum at Fitztown Challenge Blog. I hope you will join Team C and me for some fun and prizes!
Did you know you could print a digital image on an inkjet printer and then color with Copics? You did! Why hadn't you told me? lol I read it somewhere and I thought maybe they'd drank too much Kool-Aid but then I drank some... and they were right! I wet embossed the image and heat set it before coloring it. Once it was colored, I heat set it again. I wasn't sure that it was necessary but I was being overly cautious. 
I used a white mat because when I attempted to back the image with black or red, the color of the mat came through the image and changed the colors I'd colored with and I didn't want that.
Card Recipe:
Colored image with Copic markers
Sentiment: I Hope You Dance Set from Create with TLC
Spellbinders Labels Twenty Nine
Flower was made with a medium daisy punch from Recollections line at Michael's
I punched several and layered them after twisting the petals, added a rhinestone for the center and cut 'leaves' from a circle punch
Sticker, brads and rhinestones from my stash
I'd like to enter my card into these challenges:
