Hot Pink and Cool Blue

Hello.  Welcome.  Just a quick post to share the card I made for April CCC and sent to Marga in Spain.  Hi Marga.  If you don't know about Deborah's Card Chain Challenge you can check it out HERE

I used the sketch option and played with my blue brusho's.  Pleased with the background.  More luck than judgement.  Still not sure if it's better to spray first and sprinkle, or sprinkle and spray.  And is it less is more or is more better??  I've used my Simon Says Stamp stitch dies for the card, layer and also the little tag.  The sentiment and the butterfly are Unity stamps and the moth is PaperArtsy.  I believe this may be my first successful use of sequins.  Yeah.
