Colors and Circles

I found this challenge on Our Creative Corner when I visited Sue's Scrumplescrunch blog today. It's a color challenge "with a twist," and the twist involves circles.  Poppy, pink, lime, black and white comprise the color palette, and I've chosen Tim Holtz's mini-rosette die for my circles.  The card base is Core-dinations cardstock that's black on top and lime green under.  After dry embossing the main layer in a paisley pattern, I sanded it a bit to bring out some of the green.  The card base itself is made of the same cardstock, so the interior is lime green. The sentiment is by Wordsworth.

Hello Evelyn
How positively delighted I am that you have joined in this weeks Challenge at OCC. Gosh you are creating some extraordinary cards at the moment, every time you post it catches my breadth...... This card is another stunning piece, the rosettes just'PoP'from the Black Bg; a wonderful contrast and very effective.
Thank you also for the mention, that was very kind of you.
