inky paws challenge - keeping it Christmas!

hello, it's friday! and today kicks off the new Inky Paws Challenge on the Newton's Nook blog!! :) 
this time, it's all about adding a spreading a little Christmas cheer!!

oh yeah! LOVE that photo!! honestly, i was SO inspired by it! 
so i dug out some of my Christmas sets from last year for this card! why not? they fit seamlessly with the sets released this year, so it's a win-win! :)

i watercolored the ADORABLE little kitty wreath image from Newton's Holiday Mischief set, with my distress markers. then fussy cut it out and added foam tape. the background was created by spraying mist onto an old piece of packaging (like the clear packaging that comes on stamps!) and then smooshing that onto my card base. it's such a soft and beautiful watercolor type background! once that was dry, i flicked some white mist onto it too. 

the sentiment is from Holiday Wishes and then i just added some white pearls and a grey text-y background banner!

i LOVE how this looks! so soft and sweet, i think! :)

ok, now it's your turn! what is your favorite way to add sparkle to your cards? i must confess, usually i use wink of stella, but i was trying something else this time! ha!
i can't wait to see what you create! :)
