Spring Leaves Card : Celebrate your day

Hi Friends

I'd like to share a spring time happy card with you. Also, would like to share that I am having a crafty giveaway which is open to anyone (international folks are most welcome) you can find all the details here -- I'd be super thrilled and honored if you play along :) the prize is a 25 USD gift certificate to any store you like. 

Now onto the card, this is a 5 by 7 size side folding card.

I stamped one of the leaf design stamps from the Winnie & Walter Stamp Set- A tree for all seasons with Ranger's Archival Jet Black Ink, randomly to create my background. I wanted it to have an organic, loose water colored look so I water colored the leaves with an aqua brush and zig markers in 3 colors of spring- blue, yellow and green. This panel was die cut with the x stitched rectangles die. A piece of vellum was also die cut with a smaller x stitched rectangle die and then the sentiment from the W & W stamp set was heat embossed on it. The vellum was adhered to the panel using dots of glossy accents and then the panel was adhered to the card base using fevicol glue. To finish off the card, some yellow, blue and green sequins were added with glossy accents. 

Supplies Used:

1. Iris white cardstock 250 gsm
2. Winnie & Walter Stamp Set- A tree for all seasons
3. MFT Baby Sequin kit
4. Ranger's heat tool
5. Glossy Accents
6. Gina Marie X stitched Rectangle Dies
7. Homemade emboss buddy
8. Ranger's Fine Detail Black Embossing Powder
9. Versafine Onyx Black Inkpad
10. Fevicol Glue
11. Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens
12. Aqua brush
13. Acrylic block 
14. Sizzix Bigshot Plus for Die cutting
15. Ranger's Archival Ink- Jet black
16. Vellum

Here are a couple of pictures of the finished card:--

I am playing along with the following challenges:

Pattern Making Challenge with Mayuri (I have created a random background pattern with the leaf stamp)
Three Challenge with Shay (Three colors have been used for the leaves and sequins- yellow, green and blue) 
Sequin Challenge with Kate (sequins have been used to embellish the card)
Bright Colours Challenge with Lydia (bright colors of spring yellow, green and blue have been used)
Mooodboard Challenge with Heather P. (I was inspired by the bright colors of spring and the leaves in the moodboard)

Thanks for your time! Would love to read your comments :)
