Rose and Teal

I do not often use contrasting colors for mats - what do you think?  The image is a favorite Hampton Art daisy, and "Sister" is a Dazzle sticker by Hot Off the Press.  I used two different embossing folders, some sheer ribbon and a Recollections gem in shades of teal.  The coloring is Twinkling H20 (African Jade and Playful Peony).  Classy Cards 'n Such has a lot of cardmaking supplies, including the Spellbinder Ovals, and many sets of H20 colors.  The pale teal embossed layer is reminiscent of the inspiration at Classy Cards.
Vintage Dahlia inspiration, with colors (Rose, teal, pearl grey):
