Sponging on kraft

Hey everyone, a quick post, this is my second post of the day. I just finished making this card, so thought of sharing it right away.

I was thinking about this card for the last 2 days, and so glad I made it.
I had used only kraft card stock for this card. I started with dry embossing the base, and then I did sponging using the ARTplorations Big bloom  stencil, in 2 shades of pink, and 2 shades of green. Then I die cut the front panel to give a border. Added rhine stones to the flower center, and a ribbon at the top. Finally stamped the sentiment from Mama Elephant - water blooms. I am very happy with the finished look.

Linking this card with:

STAMPlorations Anything goes
I have used the ARTplorations stencil here.

Runway Inspired Challenge
I just love this dress, I had used the kraft card stock to match up the colors, and used the shades of pink and green to match the delicate flowers on this dress. I was also inspired to use the top border.

Happy Little Stampers
I had sponged the ink using the stencil.

I am thinking many will think, what is going on in my head to link this card here. My interpretation is that I am going with the basket color(I am not sure, if we can interpret that way though). Even though so much is going on this card, I don't know why but I think it is still CAS, there is plenty of white space, and the colors are soft too. Please delete it, if you find it doesn't qualifies here :) I know that, I am taking a chance ;)

Thank you for stopping by, I really appreciate your kind  feedback :) Have a great day!
