Pretty pink flowers

Hi, today I am showing a card that was inspired from the colors at Color Throwdown.

I am trying to use NBUS that I are in my stash and got use two on this card: the flowers in the background and the die cut flower. I started by taking the background flower from YNS - Flower ink splatter and stamping it twice along the length of my card in Mama Elephant's blush pigment ink. Then I took the flower die from Paper Smooches - dainty flowers and cut it out of green, light pink and dark pink papers. After cutting off the stems, I inlaid the different colors of the pinks together on some computer paper that I put adhesive on. Then I cut around around the flowers, the computer paper helped to keep everything together and make it much easier to put on my card.
I took the amazing die from Wplus9's That is all set and cut it out of the two pink colors and white cardstock. I stamped the word amazing on the white die cut with Hero Arts Green Hills shadow ink. Then layered the dies together on top of one another but sligthly staggered. I stamped the 'you are' and embossed it and then added all of the die cuts to the card around it. My last steps were adding a few nuvo drops and adding shimmer to the die cuts with a spectrum noir sparkle pen.

I am sharing this in the following challenges:
