This one had me stumped for awhile!  I started out with strong colors on a large piece of watercolor paper.  Then I stenciled on clear paste and sprinkled with glitter.  It was gorgeous, and would have looked marvelous on the side of a building, but it was way too overwhelming for a mere card front . . .

Cutting it down to size was the solution.  It also occurred to me to layer it onto a textured background and then top it with a die cut tree.  Although the camera has ignored it, the glitter shimmers through the tree and I'm happy with the results . . . hope you like it too!
