more merry & bright...

Hey friends!!  Popping in with a card for a few challenges.  Lately my crafting speed has been slow and slower, lol, so it took me about a day to get this card made.  Of course, it doesn't help that I watercolored the background.   I'm playing along with CASology (tree), ColourQ, Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge (holly jolly stamping) and ChouxChoux Paper Art Christmas/Winter challenge.  After my watercolor background had dried sufficiently I stamped it with the fun Concord & 9th Tree Ring background stamp using Delicata Golden Glitz ink.  A little tree from the Concord & 9th Shine Brighter set was stamped over the tree ring using Coastal Cabana ink. I die cut a banner using one of the smaller dies from the MFT Fishtail Flag Stax dies and stamped it with the sentiment.  A second banner was die cut from gold glitter cardstock using the same die, but made slightly bigger, as a mat for the sentiment banner.  The watercolor panel was die cut using my A Jillian Vance Design Polka Dot Background dies.  A second panel was cut from pink cardstock as a layering piece for the main panel.  I added the sentiment banner to the watercolored panel and then some sequins in coral and pink.  The pink panel was adhered to a light grey card base at an angle and the main panel was adhered on top.  The card turned out pretty much how I thought it would, but I think I added a few too many sequins... what do you think?
