Masking, stenciling, and stamping

Hey friends, I am up with a card, as the post suggests, I did all those in the order they are mentioned.
I woke bit sleepy today morning, as I took an anti histamine yesterday morning, but I was awaken by the Simon Wednesday Challenge's colors..hahaa, yes but it is true!!
I chose a sketch from another challenge and put together this card, bit time consuming card.

I chose white base and front, I started off with masking the upper part, and then coloring the bottom part, I had used the same fluorescent pastels, which I was talking about in my yesterday's post. I colored all 3 shades of blue and smudged to smoothed with my finger, and then carefully dusted off the extra powder. Then I used the bold floral stencil from ARTplorations and added the flowers in the shades of the pink.
Once done with the bottom part, I masked it and did the same for the upper part with the oppsosite colors, and used the leaf print stencil from ARTplorations to do the leaves in blue shades.
Once all this stenciling was done, I used all 5 color markers, and gave an outline to the flowers and the leaves.
Added the sentiment from Uniko Studio - simply said birthday.
rhine stones t finish off the flower centers. The work space was covered by the powder, so keep wet tissue around to wipe off. I am going to add all the pictures of my process of creating this card. Plus sharing a picture of the view from my craft room. Yesterday finally I was able to set up my craft station in my new more crafting on dinning table!!! YAY!! I can afford to leave some stuff scattered around, even though I am a neat freak, hehhee.
Hope you all like my card :)

This is the view from where I sit to craft by the window.
I can see our complex's clubhouse, and the outdoor swimming pool, to the right, there is plenty of construction but I can see the sea, and the mountains in the neighboring China.

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