Happy New Year Card

Hello Bloggers,

A Happy New Year card today. You can see the tiny 2017 at the top right corner. :)
The sentiment is experimental :) I stencil-gesso'ed it and then sprayed some golden glitter over it. Surprisingly, it held and even produced some extra volume to the letters:
Here is a closer look at the top of the card with all its layers:
