Simon says tickets please.!!

well hey there bloggers,
So Simon wants some tickets and here are mine!!

I applied antique linen DI to the base card and then spritzed with heirloom gold perfect pearls mist, another new one! when dry I added tea dye DI and then walnut stain around the edge..I then inked a Tim flourish stamp with walnut stain and then stamped just on corners. The other background pieces are my new must use all the time Tim Holtz tissue wrap which comes in a huge roll!!!It is awesome! I coloured with picket fence distress stain, another Tim wonder and then when dry applied some perfect pearls spray and then when dry overstamped in script.
The middle section is some Tim kraft embossed paper, coloured with pearl paint dabber, then I did stamp some script in White which looked great but got covered up!!!
The flowers are cut using Tim holtz die from various kraft card stock, edged with walnut stain DI and spritzed...stay too long and I may spritz you!!!
I added script detail to a couple of the layers and my final layer was snowflake, spritzed and coloured around edges..the centres are washers and Tim pins.
Finally, the tickets, these are creative expressions tickets and were stamped and spritzed as flowers...see I went spritz mad!!..I don't get put much!!!!!!
I am super chuffed with the result and really enjoyed just playing,is so nice when it all works out!!!!
I am entering this for the following competition:
