Follow Your Dreams - a layout for CSI case file no. 269

As I found my mojo (finally), I could make a layout for the new case file at CSI, case file no. 269, with this inspiration photo:
The colors of the scene reminded me my photo taken at Disneyland Paris almost 3 years ago, and I used the clues of stripes, stitching (faux), flowers, decorative border, cursive font and a bow. I used the IW 'Wishes' for my journaling, which documents how traveling to Disneyland Paris was for us a dream come true, and my wishes for 2019, to be a year that we will fulfill more of our dreams.
I used my January CKC kit, and used almost all my diy embellishments (yehhh for me!).
This lo is out of my comfort zone in a way - I rarely use these colors, and my layouts are usually much more colorful. this one is quite pale, with lots of white and black. it was so nice experiencing something new, not the usual style.
I used Lindy's Gang sprays for the splatters: Cocoa Bean Copper, Milk Chocolate Brown, Clam Bake Beige and Chateau Rose. I also used Oom Pah Pah ep partly on the Creative Embellishments' leaves chipbord. I really love the effect of the partly embossed chippies.
Papers are from P13, Reprint and DCWV. For the stamping on the background I used 49 and Market's stamp (Pascale's grammar) and Blue Fern stamp (Arkadia).
Here're some close ups on the details:





I would like to enter this lo to 2 challenges:
More Than Words - Goals and Journaling:
Like I wrote above, my wish, and goal, for this year is to make more of our dreams come true, live full our lives.
Art Playground - colors and 'Wind of Change':
