Card for Stretch your stamp 2 day 1 homework ^_^

Hi Hello..Good morning!! have you heard about the stretch your stamp 2 class from Simon says stamp shop?  if you have not you better check it out. I am one of their participant (student) ^_^.
On monday i attended their first lessons and saw there are few videos on the first lesson. found each of the video is awesome!!! worth every cent you spend :). Very inspiring and easy to follow!
So inspired by the design team videos, i have decided to do my homework and come out with this card. I know i am late in "submitting" my homework but nevermind, i think the main thing is i have fun isnt?
For the today card, i have mixed few of the techniques and design shared in the video into one card.
I do not have stamps that the DT use in the video so i just use whatever i have in my stash.

For the background, i stamped hero arts background stamp and emboss it with white embossing powder on the watercolour paper. i have notice that my white embossing powder doesnt work as supposedly. It doesnt show white colour at all and more to cream colour, secondly i didnt stick well though i use new versamark. I guess my embossing powder expired :P...can this happen ^_^ ?
 Since i do not have other white embossing powder so i went on with the project. Coloured the background with few distress inks. Cut it to smaller pcs (3cm x 3cm) and create window panel. I regret that i didnt put foam dots on the back some of the panel to create in and out look.  Maybe next time ^_^.
I made a mistake ! because of i never clear emboss the hot air balloon image and the ink bleed. But i use versafine! which supposedly waterproof? hmmm lesson learnt.
Anyway, i lovee lovee this hot air balloon stamp and dies from Lawn Fawn! a GILTOS (Give Love to Old Stash) item for today.

So this is the side view of the card. For the rain drop i use the negative part of the Hello sentiment from lawn fawn. ^_^ dont waste even the negative part.
Would love to enter this card for
