Sprinkled with Love

I've been mentally designing a card for both the CAS-ual Fridays challenge and Virginia's View challenge for the last several days.  I had my checklist of ideas: felt, sequins, lots of white space, and CAS.  Finally, it's out of my brain and onto a card:

A bit of an edit:  I thought the picture of this card on the bright background looked a little overpowering so I'm posting another picture on the white background.  I'm still not sure which photo looks better.

 
The stamps are from PTI's Shakers and Sprinkles and so are the tiny little sequins, as well as the dies that were used for the little hearts and the word, "Sprinkled".  The ink is PTI's Raspberry Fizz.  The clouds were cut using the cut file, "6 clouds" from the Silhouette store.  The felt is from Hobby Lobby.  I glued paper to the back of the felt before I ran it through the Big Shot and it cut like butter!  The hearts were then run through a Xyron sticker maker, while the other die cuts were layered five times and adhered with Tombow Mono Multi glue.  Claudine Hellmuth Multi-Medium Matte was used to adhere the sequins.

I really appreciate all of your help and information about watermarks!  I took a look at PicMonkey.com and it looks easy peasy.  Of course, you'll notice no watermark yet on the above photo... um, baby steps (she said sheepishly).

This card is playing in the following challenges:
Virginia's View Challenge #11 - Clean Slate                                        CAS-ual Fridays: CFC135 - Felt and Sequins
       

Thanks for coming over, have a wonderful day!
