Texture, die cuts, and fussy cuts

Hello my second post, I thought of sharing this card while I have some time my hand.
My son is home today, well we told him to not go to school, as his grade was going to the beach today, and it is extremely hot and humid...and it gets worse by the beach, so I told him to stay home, he couldn't believe This is what he asked to confirm.

Off lately I am very grateful for the comfortable life I have, I sit in an air-conditioned house, and I should not be complaining about heat. We have a lot of construction going around our neighborhood, and see the workers working in the scorching heat, so I have no right to complain, but be grateful.
But there is a big plus point, I get to witness beautiful and spectacular sunsets nowadays, you all might already know that I am sucker for sunsets :)

Anyways, here is another card which is based on the same color theme I am into, I feel good and refreshed looking at these colors.
I used a textured base card, and masked and inked the panel using a green shade of DI, and then I used the leaves from the Altenew Peony to stamp in a darker shade, and arranged the fussy cut peonies and added a die cut from spellbinders, and a few sequins to finish off.
