'Congrats' card

Hello friends!
This is my second card share for all the fun challenges going on over at the W & W blog along with Pink Fresh Studio for iNSD challenges.
Here's a look at my card :
My card was inspired by the Moodboard and Sequin challenges at the W & W blog.
Also entering  for Simon Says Stamp -Let's get Sentimental challenge.

Here's a look at the mood board :
iNSD 2015 Mood Board Challenge
I was inspired by the geometric wall and the patches of neon tapes. I was also inspired by the soft watercolored look.

To recreate it, I first stenciled my background using  the Winnie and Walter Creative Screening: Triangled  and different Distress inks- Picked Raspberry, Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick, but I found the background to be a bit dark, so to tone it down I painted a layer of Gesso over it. I then did some spattering with black acrylic paint, stamped my sentiment which is from the Winnie and Walter- The Big, the Bold and You set and popped it on foam dots, and did the same with the flowers and leaves too which are from my very favorite Altenew set, Lacy Scrolls. For the finishing touches, I added some sequins and gold spatters using the Heidi Swapp Color Shine- Gold Lame mist.

Supplies used :
Campap White paper, Fabriano Brustro Watercolor paper.
Stamps- Winnie and Walter- The Big, the Bold and You, Altenew set, Lacy Scrolls.
Inks- Hero Arts Butter Bar ink, Avery Elle Lemongrass ink, Versafine Onyx Black, Picked Raspberry, Tumbled Glass and Worn Lipstick.
Winnie and Walter Creative Screenings: Triangled, Heidi Swapp Color Shine- Gold Lame mist, Black Acrylic paint, Sequins.

I hope you like my card. I would love to hear your feedback on it. :)
