Camouflaged sentiment

The CAS Colours & Sketches challenge #168 is a colour challenge.

I used Distress inks on my card (picked raspberry, carved pumpkin and  mustard seed)

I masked off an area and used the mini sponge blending tools to aply the colours.
Then I diecut the word Hoera (hurray) from the panel and a few more times from white cardstock.
I inlaid the diecut and stacked the white ones underneath to give it height, but also to make it stand out if you look at it from an angle the white layers will define the contours.

Few homemade enamel dots and pearls to help your eye travel across the card.

Stuck the panel down onto a cardbase with tape runner
