A mixed media card

hey all, this is my third post of the day. I made this card this afternoon, I watched the video at STAMPLorations, where Monika did her spotlight project. I was truly impressed with her card. So gave a spin of my own.

I started with a water color front panel. for this I used a cling wrap, and dabbed it with distress inks - dried marigold and mustard seed. I sprayed some mist and then I pressed my watercolored panel on it. It completely absorbed the swooshed up inks. Then I used  Heidi Swapp's mixed media script stamp to stamp the script in dried marigold. I used mama elephant - zenith shapes, the chevron stamps to stamp around.
The sentiment on the arrows is from Kaisercraft. The other 2 words- happiness and memories are from the Hero arts - things we love. So is the flower stamp as well. "#buy this" stamp is from another company, unfortunately I don't have the name.....I will try to look for it.
I added a doily on the finished panel, and added a gold twine, and used foam adhesive for my flowers. I used a light turquoise textured card for my base.
There is a lot going on this card, and I am quite happy with the result, hope you all like it too.
