CAS Mix Up October Challenge my second card

I tried it again friends!  This time I used a more intricate Echo Park Snowflakes # 2 stencil...and I thought I would try softer colors to sponge on the mixed media paper.
I used distress inks:  tattered rose and shaded lilac...couldn't resist adding some pearl drops from my Viva Paper pen and a PTI Fab Flakes die cut on vellum and white embossed.
I have one more idea and I think I will use this same stencil, but a different stay tuned!  Will see if the next one is a better ghosting technique for me!
Here is the link to the October CAS Mix Up challenge
I stamped + ghosting + die cut & embossing
Heart Hugs, friends!
