A "picture perfect" challenge @ Paper Smooches Sparks

Paper Smooches Sparks is hosting a photo inspired challenge right now.  Here is the photo:
And here is my card inspired by the vase on the left, because I just loved that turquoise blue and orange combination
To make the background, I inked up a paisley Sizzix embossing folder with Versamark ink, inserted a piece of orange cardstock into the folder and ran it through my Cuttlebug.  Then I sprinkled turquoise embossing powder over the orange cardstock, so it would adhere to the inked areas, and heat embossed it.  The banner, sentiment, flowers and leaves were also heat embossed with Versamark and the same turquoise embossing powder. 
The Paper Smooches stamps I used were from the Streamers set (banner), Chit Chat set (sentiment), and Needle Little Love set (flowers and leaves).  I added some white enamel dots to the flower centers.
