Congrats card for Newly Weds - GDT post for Scrapping4fun Challenge #90

Hello everyone
I am so excite to share this beautiful card which I have made for the GDT post at Scrapping4fun challenge blog for Challeneg#90. I am so glad they gave me this opportunity. I want you all to click the link below and come play at this month's challenge.
I have made a circular shabby chic card using Papericious The Wedding collection pattern paper....which is my current favorite and I am very soon going to do an album using the same papers.
So, what I basically did is cut a 6" diameter circle and then gave it scallop edge with my art scissors. Then I cut more circle which measured 1/8th inch smaller in size and from a silver glitter paper. I layered my pattern paper over this which was cut 1/4th of an inch small than the outermost circle. I distressed it at edges and popped it over some foam sheet to give it some dimension. Now, my card base is 53/4"circular base which I cut did a little offcenter to ensure that it had an hinge.....else I would get 2 separate circles.I glued my card base to the top and then started the work on my card front.
The sentiment in the center as well as the circular bouquet is from the paper pack. I colored all the flowers using Distress inks in Spun sugar, Picked Raspberry, Shaded Lilac and Fossilized Amber. For the leaves I used Twisted citron and Crushed Olive.

For the sentiment, I did distress ink blending with Shaded Lilac, Fossilized Amber and Spun Sugar. Then I clear heat embossed it and while it was still hot I sprinkled some clear sparkle dust on it. Thought, the camera doesn't quite catch it...It has an amazing shine and sparkle to it. I added some sparkle even to the flower centers using glossy accents. I then layered the sentiment and the floral frame onto a silver glitter paper and then mounted it on the card using some chipboard.
To give more texture to this card, I added some chipboard elements from Papericious which were coated with white gesso and little sparkle dust at a few places. Now, for the fun part....I did some flower layering using handmade mulberry flowers and leaves on a cheesecloth. I added little roses, rose buds and a bunch of pollens at a few places. The little floral vine on the left is something I made.....so much fun. Sprinkled some sequins and pearls and my card front was done.
On the inside, I just added a sentiment from the paper line with some silver glitter paper.....Kept it simple and left all the space for messages.
