We Wish You a Merry Christmas

My last Christmas card make for the year for a special friend... I love how it turned out.
I made my watercolour background with Distress Oxides & smooching, then a bit more water and dabbing off the excess.  I die cut my ornament twice... in white card which I kept as the outline and the second with double sided tape which I added gold glitter to the cutouts and then repostioned them in the white outline.  I used a die cut tree landscape from my stash to create a snowy scene and then added a die cut holly branch from which to hang my ornament.  I used a deep maroon pink card and to finish stamped and gold heat embossed my sentiment and watercoloured the flower.
I am joining in the challenges at CAS Mix Up December - Anything Goes (stamping, heat embossing, die cuts, watercolouring, glitter), also to CAS Watercolour - Anything Goes, and to Muse; Christmas Visions 90 - Any Holiday Card.  Thanks for taking a peek
