Mixed Media Tree......

My Mixed Media Card for today......
A few challenges inspired my choice of colours.....
The background has been sprayed with bright vivid colours.
The butterfly's and circle stamps have been heat embossed with white EP.
The text has been heat embossed with gold EP.
The tree has been stenciled with  white embossing paste 
and then clear embossing paste with micro beads added on top.
The edges have been stamped with a mixed media stamp, 
heat embossed with orange EP and gold EP.
The main square sentiment has been stamped onto black card and raised with foam.
I don't usually post more than one card a day but realised that one of the challenges is ending shortly.
How is that....you have a whole month, you have all these ideas in your head 
and then leave it to the last minute?
