Happy Birthday - Geometric flower card

Hello guys
So today I have a handmade card which is again inspiration driven and here is the picture which inspired me to make this card. I was going through Pinterest for some inspiration for a project and I saw this picture. I was so driven by it that I decided to make a card.
I am putting this card up at the following challenges:
  1. Paru's Card making Challenges - July - Happy Birthday
  2. Polkadoodles Week#28 - Anything Goes
  3. Scrapping4fun Challenge #94- Birthday
  4. SimonSaysStamp - Monday challenge - Distress it.
  5. YNS color challenge#68 - I have used Pale pink, Bright pink and Green color.
  6. Color Throwdown #451
  7. DLART July Linky challenge
  8. DLART Thankful thursday #208 - Anything Goes
  9. The Flower Challenge#10 - Embossing Dry/Heat
  10. HLS July CAS card - Birthday

It took me a while to make this as all the flowers and leaves are stamped and heat embossed on a watercolor cardstock and then individually watercolored using Distress inks. I fussy cut everything out and kept them aside while I readied my card base.
For the base, I started with a white cardstock(270gsm) cut to standard A2 size. I cut a frame out from the front of this cardbase leaving a 1/2"border for the frame. Then, I arranged and adhered my flowers and leaves on the front panel. Then, I added a piece of clear acetate behind my frame and secured everything.
On the inside, I added Kraft cardstock which was splattered with white acrylic paint and heat embossed sentiment which I glued behind my front panel. I finished my card with few sequins and a coat of wink of stellar sparkle on the flowers and leaves. I hope you all like liked my card.
Supplies used:
  1. White cardstock (270gsm) - Itsybitsy
  2. Kraft cardstock (270gsm) 
  3. Watercolor cardstock (250gsm) - Personal Stash
  4. Distress inks - Picked Raspberry, Spun Sugar, Crushed Olive and Cracked pistachio
  5. Mudra stamps- Geometric Nature
  6. Mudra stamps - Sequins -Sugar Plum Mix and Harvest Mix
  7. Watercoloring Brush
  8. White Acrylic Paint
  9. Ranger heat embossing powder - Superfine White 
  10. Versamark watermark inkpad
