View through the gate

I took way too long trying some new things and working out the details of this card.  Am I the only one that does this?
Technique - lots of sponging (doesn't show up very well on edges).  Behind the gate - I sponged several different colors on shimmery cs, then stamped over this. 
Stamp - Inkadinkado; gate - Marianne die; flowers - Cuttlebug (part of a border die); leaves - Sizzix; Cuttlebug birthday folder, bit of lacy fiber; shiny gems for flower centers; metallic cs for gate.

So pretty - the dies, flowers and embossing work so well together to create lots of texture without adding bulk. Thanks for sharing your take on YNS color challenge #23!
