Busy Being Happy - Lindy's Gang and 7 Dots Studio

Hello to you, dear friends. I would like to share with you my latest layout.
I was so inspired by the challenge at 7 Dots Studio, with their theme 'Sunrise/ Sunset':
So I took a photo of my youngest, taken a few years ago, on one of our beach days. It was summer and we spent the whole afternoon till the sun went down. I just love the colors of the sunset and how they reflect in the water.
I tried to mimic the colors with different mediums, also to match November challenge at Lindy's Gang:
These are the Lindy's products that I've used:
ep - Byzantine Bronze, King Midas Gold, Midnight Sapphire.
I also used lots of 7 Dots Studio products:
pp - Drive all night/ Dreamer collection; Torn/ Writer's Block collection.
stamp & stickers - Thoughts Keeper.
tags - Writer's Block.
The chipboard is from Creative Embellishments, and this lo is also for their November challenge, with this beautiful moodboard:
I was inspired by the warm autumn colors, with the touch of blue and by the leaves. I covered the chipboard with Lindy's ep King Midas Gold and heat embossed it. Just love the rich gold color it turned out.
Other products I used:
Prima - art basics - clear gesso, texture paste; art alchemy - acrylic paint Dragon's Eye; metallique wax vintage gold.
TH - mini stencil set 30; distress ink Faded Jeans.
metal die - Die-Namites Large Ivy.
Ranger's archival ink coffee.
misc.- micro beads, sequins, gauze, resin, metal gears and 'Dream' label.
I would also like to enter this lo the the 'metal embellishment' challenge at Altairart:
Here are some close-ups on the details:
