Sparkle & Shine w/Winnie & Walter

Hi Peeps, Here's my card for the Sparkle and Shine Challenge Four ( a sketch challenge) sponsored by Winnie and Walter. I just won a fabulous prize package from Cupcake Inspirations 300th Celebration recently. Just about everything on this card is from the prizes including the stamp set, Sugar Rush and the Pretty Pink Posh sequins. 

I still have practice work to do on my water colored backgrounds. I used distress ink smooshed on a Ranger mat, spritzed with water. I put my water color paper face down on it, dried it and dipped some more. For the cupcake frosting, I dipped a brush into the water spritzed ink and dropped it into the gold heat embossed swirls. My photo doesn't show how the shiny gold EP looks, which is very pretty! 
I'm loving my new stamps and dies I won!
