Mixed Media Layered Christmas Card

I have been playing with mixed media in my cards lately and this is a Christmas card I made. Not sure if I like it or not? I started with water color paper and shades of green Brushos in the background. I applied red 3D stamp paint (by Viva) through a poinsettia stencil, but it lost some of it definition due to seepage. I stamped parts of a Hero Arts Christmas words stamp in a couple areas and added a couple matching raised strips on the right side of the card. I stamped :Christmas on another matching raised strip. The Christmas Joy die cut and sentiment are from a set by Papertrey. I attached the thin die cut with glue dots under some pearls.

Lots of Layers is the challenge at That Craft Place and Anything Mixed Media is the theme at Love to Create.

Oh Karen - I know how you feel about the spammers!!
Love your card - the die cut seems to float about the red and green.
Blessings

A beautiful collage of elements used on this card design. I keep saying I need to start Christmas cards but never seem to get started on them like I should. You are inspiring me though!
