Mojo cosmos

I carried some of my supplies from yesterday over to another card.  I had created this coral-colored wax-resist paper, and used part of the sheet yesterday. I decided to put the snippets to good use and see how the coral worked with green.
The layout is the current Mojo sketch. The image is from Pattie's Creations (I'm not actually sure if cosmos come in coral or pink; it seems like all the ones I have grown were white or purple). It's colored with pencils and it's mounted on a coral-colored snippet of card stock. Sentiment is from Stampin Up.  There's a strip of adhesive lace along the diagonal cut, and the white silk flower was colored by sponging some Coral Cameo ink on it.
I'm entering this challenges:
Pattie's Creations #110-- use flower image
Mojo Monday #396 -- sketch 
Pixie's Snippet Playground #175- use snippets
Simon Says Stamp Monday -- coral
Word Art Wednesday #182 -- anything goes
