MixMedia styled card

Hello everyone.

Back with another card for the challenge at the House of Cards.
This month it is all about feathers and/or colors. I choose to do both, and here is my card.
I knew right away when we got the theme for this challenge. 

I wanted to make a mixmedia card, based on a card I have made on 
class with Kirsten Hyde a while ago.
For my card I have used die cuts, flower, sequins, chains and feathers (from an old earring)
Embosssed a white paper and added some Distress ink randomly and disstressed egdes and torn them to. 
Build up the the card layers with the die cuts and foam tape and the flowers. The feathers I stuck under this layers. The sequins feader I put randomly inbetween the flowers. Secured the chains under all the layers with a tweezer.
I have seen a quot that I just loved, and wanted to try out lettering, and for once I was happy with it.
Found it useful to do it on a narrow strip of paper, easier to do an even size for the letters. 
Then I use some light Gesso, acrylic paint and acrylic marker and made drops around the card in two shade of torquise, one with shimmer. Painted also on the chains with the shimmer one. 

Head over to the blog and see the other girls fabulous creations and I would love to see your take on the challenges over at the House of Cards.
