Joyous blue!

Hi there!  Happy Friday :)
Just popping in with a card that was inspired by Kimberly's beauty here for the very first Muse: Christmas Visions challenge MCV1!
Here is Kimberly's card
and here is mine
I loved seeing Kimberly's blue and gold together and just had to have a go!
I used a Hero Arts stamp with really pretty and intricate snowflakes around the JOY sentiment that just begged to be water coloured.  I used a bright blue from my Derwent Inktense pencils, adding more water to lighten up the colour for the snowflakes area.  I trimmed down the WC front all around and with one of the narrow strips, I coated with Versa Mark and gold EP twice.  I did the same for the 3 wood stars, but coated them 3 times.
EZPZ...as Darnell would say!
Hope to see in the gallery how Kimberly's card will inspire you!
