Simon Monday Challenge - Lets Sparkle

Here is Simon Monday Challenge - Lets Sparkle, below is the challenge photo:


And here is the card I made to attend this challenge:


I was inspired by Kristina Werner's Painted Ornaments cards. I painted the ornament with Finetec pearlescent paints on the black watercolor paper. The mixed colors on the ornament look pretty shimmery and sparkle. Once the paints are dry, I white embossed the greetings on the main ornament. Finish the card by attaching some little flower and star sequins on the black background. Below is another look of the card:


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI, black water color paper
Ink Pads: Versamark
Stamps: Gina K Designs
