Turquoise Gilded Christmas Card

This card made it to the Top 3 @

Hello Bloggers,

a very golden Christmas card today. In weird colors :)

I started with coloring the Merry Xmas fishtail banners, loved the result, and simply had to follow the color scheme. :)

The background is cardstock embossed with an embossing folder and gilded with some wax.
The flowers are sprayed with some water diluted golden paint. Once dry it happened to end up very shiny :)
... still wondering if Christmas Poinsettia can be this color... at least on a card :)
