Hello sketch card

Hi everyone!
I have a new card to share with you:
This card looks simple, but it took ages! I started by stamping the scallop circle for the sentiment, using StazOn, over Daffodil layering paper from Hero Arts. I did it twice, so I could double the small inside flower to give dimension. I also stamped it on Neenah cardstock, but I wiped the ink of the dots used for journaling. I cut both stamped images and went around the borders with a black marker. After I glued them together, I stamped the sentiment using Memento ink and I covered the small flower with Glossy Accents.
For the card base, I used Eggshell layering paper and I clear embossed the woodgrain stamp over the front of the card. Then I masked the pattern on the card and sprayed it using Mr Hueys from Studio Calico. I wanted a gradient, so I started spraying the Classic Studio Calico, concentrating on the bottom of the card. Then I took the Warm Mr Hueys and sprayed it off the bottom of the card, just so it was a bit darker. Using a cloth I removed the excess ink from the embossed area and then removed the masking. Adhered the sentiment using dimensionals, and finish the card with some rhinestones.

I made this card following the sketch from this month contest at Hero Arts:
And I will enter the challenge over at A blog named Hero, because I looooove the woodgrain stamp ;-)
I hope you liked the card and thanks for stopping by!!
