A Merry & Bright Christmas Card.

I love playing with bright colours and was doing so
when I found the Daring Cardmakers Blog
with this amazing Inspiration Photo.
Details - Here
Now who would not want to play with this beauty!
As part of the challenge you have to pick
3 elements for your creation. I chose
Colours including Gold Detail the tree and ribbon.
I started off with basic coloured card stock.
For my main background I chose water colour paper
inking it up with Tim Holtz Distress Inks -
Wilted Violet/Mermaid lagoon
 and Inka Gold which were spritzed
and added randomly.
This was also spritzed with SU Champagne Mist
Added a few touches of Inka Gold
to my card base to add interest.
Sentiment is from GKD and cut from a Kaisercraft die.
This also is spritzed and finished with ribbon.
My circle is a stitched die from MFT
and attached my Christmas tree from Nina's Things cut
from scrap DP and heat embossed twice with clear powder.
Finished off with some sequins and a tiny pearl.
I also saw that Happy Little Stampers 
November Christmas Challenge is Watercolour - yay!
so I am popping this card over there too.
You can find the details Here.
Thanks so much for dropping in.
Love reading your comments.
Till next time

I like all the details on your card like the great background or that you used a tag to stamp the greeting on.
Thanks for sharing your card with the Daring Cardmakers this week.
