Merry & Bright

Can't resist being in the drawing for a $50 Ellen Hutson gc.  That's the prize for Mix It Up Challenge: Pink Fresh Studio.  
I've won 2 different PFS paper pads including Christmas Wishes--very fun, modern papers that don't need much added. The sentiment is made with Ellen Hutson Merry & Bright dies.  I colored the top layer with a gold Wink of Stella pen.  
The paper panel is sprayed with gold Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz which you can see in the close up.  My tendency would be to use black for the mat, but when I laid the panel on a kraft sheet that was it.  Can't take much credit for this card, but I do love it!  I'm also entering Christmas Card Challenges, HLS Anything Goes with Dies & Paru's Card Making Challenge.  The big storm didn't come as close to land as expected, so we came through without any problems.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
