Less is More Challenge #227: sunset colours

Less is More Challenge #227: sunset colours.

I've googled and found a stunning sunset picture.
Wanted to slather the whole cardfront in those colours, but that's not CAS ;-).

I've used Distress inks (dusty concord, picked raspberry and ripe persimmon).
On hindsight maybe a seedles preserve or a chipped sapphire instead of dusty condcord, would maybe match the photo better, but I really like the gradient as it is. I've also opted to have my gradient go horizontally as the strip is so narrow, in the photo the gradient is vertical.
Used Simon Says Stamp Small hello to diecut it from the front panel.
Mounted a black apnel behind it as the  shrubbery in the photo, no real dimension, just flat layers.
3 iridescerent rhinestones to help your eye focus.

Thailand beach sunset wallpaper, not sure who to credit, found it with search engine.
