Congrats!! card with bokeh background

Hi everybody,
Today I am here with a brand new card which I made for Altenew's November Inspiration challenge. The inspiration picture was so tempting, even after being quite busy these days I couldn't resist playing.
Please have a look at the inspiration picture..

 And I came up with this card

I had put some Gansai Tambi starry night water colors over flowers and they looked so pretty with that light shimmer. But because of this my card was reflecting the light so I had to take picture in one more orientation.

For making this card I first created the background of bluish green colour with the distress inks. I used evergreen bough and mowed lawn colours. Second step was to create bokeh effect as in inspiration picture. I used my Hero arts unicorn white pigment ink and sponged it over handmade circle stencil. ( I die cut different size of circles out of a OHP sheet)
Once background was ready, I stamped flowers from wild hibiscus stamp set. and then coloured them using Tombow dual brush markers. To give a 3D effect in flowers I put I glued one set of them on the prepared background and glued partially the second copy on them. If you notice left flower you can make that out. :)
I also spluttered some Gansai Tambi gold water colour it just enhanced the beauty of the card beautifully :) I also put a very light coat of this shimmery gold on flowers as well just to make them even more prettier.
I tied a red twine and stamped the sentiment on a stripe of card stock which was also my card base's colour.
And finally I foam mounted the card panel on the card base. And Ta da.. My card was ready!!
I hope you like the card
