Christmas Card for Throwdown

Hi all! Welcome to my Christmas card submittal for the Christmas Card Throwdown: Gilding Flakes (or foil).
I foiled the background stripes and the sentiment with my Spellbinders Hot Glimmer System. I used my Foiled Brushstrokes and Stripes Glimmer Set and silver foil. As of this writing this set is 1/2 off! Then I splattered with Shimmer Spritz in Silver.

This card is simple, but takes several steps to make. I start with a full sheet of Arteza watercolor paper taped to a hard board with removable tape. Using a wet on wet technique, I dropped blues and greens from my Kuretake Gansi Tambi watercolor set and lifted and tipped the board, so that they would blend together.
Once the watercolored paper had dried, I die cut the deer from the Fun Stamper Journey  Prancing Deer set.
The reins, bells and collar were die cut from sliver glitter paper.
The sentiment from Spellbinder's Yana's Christmas Sentiment was foiled with silver onto the same watercolored paper that I had created for the deer. Here is the completed card. I tried to show the amazing sparkle & shine it has.

Thanks for joining me today. This is one of my favorite cards this year and I have made many! I always love some watercoloring, some glitz & shine and lots of white. Seasons Greetings to all!
