Happy Birthday - Masculine Mixed Media Card

Hello guys
Today I have a mixed media card to share with you all which is made for a special friend. I made this card for him keeping in mind that he loves flowers and so I tried to add masculine colors along with flowers and bling in my style.
I started with a standard A7 card base (5"x 7") using 170gsm White cardstock. Then, I layered beautiful vintage pattern papers from Eno Greetings that I bought a while ago. I added foam tape between the 2 papers to add more dimension. 
I then did some stenciling using Stars stencil from MFT using 2 in 1 Modelling paste from ItsyBitsy. Then I spritzed it with Grape crush and Black Current Color splash from ItsyBitsy. Dried it all and then layered some pattern paper pieces.
I came back with cheesecloth and black jute twine and beautiful flowers from ItsyBitsy. I added a heart shaker element which I filled with assorted sequins and Dazzle cocktail. I finished the card with Die cut leaves using Curvy Leaves die from Elizabeth Craft Designs, sparkle gold dots and splatters(Black and white acrylic paints) .

I finished the inside with some more pattern paper. The sentiment used is heat embossed using Golden Tinsel embossing powder by Ranger.  To add more interest to the card, I added some glitter to the flowers and flower edges. Here is a small clip to see the cute card....
