A mixed media birthday card - Lindy's Stamp Gang

Winner of the Autumn moodboard
Continuing with the autumn mood, I've created a birthday card, using Lindy's Stamp Gang products, along with Finnabair's products.
I used papers and embellishments from my October Counterfeit Kit (7 Dots Studio pp, Lemoncraft pp, Prima flowers, Petallo flower, sequins, Robin's Nest's dew drops, DIY enamel dots).
I started applying Finnabair's clear gesso all over the 7 Dots Studio pp, then I used Finabbair modeling paste over a foliage stencil. 
After all was dried, I stamped leaves and foliage stamps (one from 7 Dots Studios, and the other I don't know the manufactor) with Ranger's black Archival ink.
I colored the masking areas with 2 LSG sprays - Go Greased Lightinin Green and Summer Lovin Sun, to get the lime color. With this combination I also colored the swirl die cuts.
The other leaves were colored with a combination of two other LSG sprays - Buccaneer Bronze and Mango Mania.
Then I adhered some microbeads with Finnabair matte gel, and some Prima's & Petaloo's flowers (after adding Finnabair's white gesso on them).
This is how it looked in the process:
Later I added some sequins, DIY enamel dots and Robin's Nest dew drops. 
I added Finnabair's Art Alchemy Sparks Acrylic Paint - Ginger Magic on the flowers and the edges of the sentiment block.
Topping with splatters of LSG Sidewalk Chalk and the lime green sprays combination.
The sentiment was heat embossed, and so was the flower next to the sentiment.
Here are some close-ups:

I would like to enter this card to the following challenges:
Lindy's Stamp Gang October challenge:
I was inspired by the leaves and the orange and green colors.
Mixed Media World - mixed media with a twist - glass or something that imitate glass (the Robin's Nest dew drops are transparent).
Dies R Us - leaves (I used two metal dies: Cheery Lynn's mini fanciful flourish and Die-Namites Large Ivy).
Thank you for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments very much!
