A Glittered and Stenciled Congrat's!

Hi friends!
I am back again :D And, this time I am sharing another stenciled card today. Stencils are SO in trend right now and there are so many different options of using them. The Pinterest board seems to be full of different types of stenciled card and projects and I was really inspired by Jennifer McGuire's recent post on using stencil embossing paste and embossing powders to create a glittered background. This is such a quick and easy way to make an ornate background for the cards. I really loved it a lot and this is my first try doing it. It definitely needs a lot of improvement but I just wanted to share my first trial here :)
So, here's a look :

Since, I wanted to keep the background as my main focus,I have limited my embellishing to just that one flower and a few pearls and of course the glittered strip bordering the stenciled background and the black cardstock. I  have also stamped and embossed my sentiment using silver embossing powder. The flower is handmade using punches and I have also distressed the embossed piece with Scattered Straw and Antique Linen Distress inks to co-ordinate with the golden embossing powder!

Supplies used :
Base cardstock -Fabriano Elle Erre!
MFT Fancy Flourish, Jef punches.
Stencil -Memory Box Rhapsody stencil, Sakura Acrylic Modelling Paste.
Versamark Dazzle Watermark stamp pad, Ranger Super Fine Gold and Silver Embossing powders.
Distress inks- Festive Berries, Scattered Straw, Antique Linen.
The Paper Company All Occasion messages stamp set.
Pearls and glitter strip.

Challenges entered :
Color Conceptions -Glam with Glitter ( Made it to Top 3 )
PPS -Clean and Simple
Moxie Fab World -Styling with Stencils

Hope you like my attempt at a CAS card. Any comments/suggestions are welcome :D
Have a nice day everyone!
