Sparkle and shimmer!!

Sticking with the Christmas cards as I have a few made that I haven't posted.  Made this using the new Simon Says Outline Merry Background.  I distressed a background blank with Cracked Pistachio and Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink and let it dry, I then stamped and embossed in WOW Clear Sparkle powder which gives a lovely shimmery effect, very hard to see in the photos! 

I then got a paintbrush and water coloured the letters with the same Distress Oxide inks.

 I then added the die cut Chunky Merry from Simon Says and the Christmas cut from the Holiday frames die. This card is so sparkly and shimmery its such a shame I am not able to capture it for you to see!

I shall add this to the Christmas Kickstart Challenge "Anything Goes Christmassy" also the SSS Flickr Group challenge and the SSS Wednesday Challenge "Sparkle and Shine"

Hope you all had a great Christmas considering the current restrictions and here's wishing everyone a healthy and happy 2021.
