Seeing Orange

Hello and welcome.  Meet today's card.  Just a bit of fun that made me smile since I have been feeling under the weather the last few days. 
My inspiration for this card was a canister set from Vintage Atmosphere, as I was playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast
vintage orange canister set, round orange canisters, orange and brown decor
I cut three different sized circles from a piece of acetate to use as my stencil.  Next, I sponged on 3 different shades of Distress inks ( Ripe Persimmon/ Spiced Marmalade/ Dried Marigold) randomly over my card front.  I added the white dashed lines for interest using a white Signo Pen and lastly the sentiment and the sequins. 
Also adding my card to these challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays- TIC TAC TOE (dots, white, sequins)
Simon Says- MAKE it SPARKLE (sequins)
 Thanks so very much for coming by and taking a look.
Supplies:  stamp- Technique Tuesday/ Distress ink/ wh. Signo pen/ sequins/ glue/ bl Memento ink/circle dies/ acetate
