Dahlia in pinks and reds

I made a card for the Through the Craft Room Door challenge.

On my card today, I used Dahlia image recently released at Doodle Pantry.  This image was created as a clear stamp for CDS back in 2012 I think, and then was offered as just an outline digital. When they closed, I took  my design back and sort of forgot about it.  I recently found my illustrating file of it and made it into a full digital set with papers and color images too.

On my card, I colored the image myself.  This is actually the second copic marker attempt I have made, but I posted the third and forth attempts last week using other images.
I didn't have a very good variety of reds in my one set of copics, so I couldn't get them blended too well. But I still like how the card turned out in the dark pinks/reds.

Front of my card:

Here's the copic markers I used.
