Sentiment by Altenew, Dies by Spellbinder and Cheery Lynn Designs, Stencil by Tim Holtz

I saw this gorgeous moodboard over at Artful Crafting and thought I'd play along.
The colours are SO not up my alley. I would've just used a couple of shades provided (preferably the greys and blue) and created a monochromatic card. BUT I wanted to challenge myself and stuck to the colours shown.

The big rose is handmade. The other three roses I dyed using distress inks.
The moodboard photo is so rustic and grungy, I wanted my card to have the same look
Applied tons of gesso and texture paste, also used Tim Holtz layering stencil to add design.
I also added a lot of stamping on the background but you cant really see that in photos because of the splatters.

Tons of sparkle on this card, closeup below.

Added a couple of sequins and I was done. 
I hope you like it. I was very apprehensive, I didn't want to add the rusty lattice, I was itching to add a white one instead but I stopped myself. I think it doesn't look too bad, it actually works, separates the floral arrangement from the background!

What an amazing card. Such pretty details. Very pretty flowers. Gorgeous colors... And the texture is so decorative... The rusty lattice really makes a great impact. It makes the other things stand out....
