Sending you Joy - Handmade card

Hello everyone
I am back with another Christmas card for you all...following the Christmas in July theme. So this one is a pretty simple card but took me some time as I did a little watercoloring.....
I am putting this card up at the following challenges:
  1. Addicted to Stamps and more Challenge #248 - Holiday
  2. Cute Card Thursday Challenge -#284 - Anything Goes
  3. DLART June Linky Challenge - Anything goes
  4. Inky Chicks Challenge #85 - Christmas 
  5. Word Art Wednesday  Challenge #288-289 - Anything Goes
  6. Simon says stamp Wednesday challenge - Anything goes
I started with a Off white cardstock cut to 41/4"by 5 1/2". On this I did some ink blending using crushed olive distress ink. I dried it with my heat gun and then I did some stamping with Cottage Ivy memento dye ink using leaf like stamp. This stamp is actually from Mudra Christmas decor stamp set and I used the deer stamp and the horn part of it which looks like mistletoe to stamp. 
Then, I turned the cardstock over and did some stamping using music notes stamp from Sheena Douglas Festive stamps -A Little Bit Festive A6 Stamp Set - Christmas Elements Stamp set using Memento Rick Cocoa dye ink. I stamped it repetitively until my entire front was covered. Then I snipped the edge and made it took like it was torn. I trimmed the cardstock  by 1/4" on the vertical side and mounted this on a gold glitter cardstock strip which was just 1"wide and 51/2"long. I then added this panel to a grey A2 size cardbase. I just wrote JOY sentiment using some watercolor pencils. 

Now, was the fun part where I heat embossed and then watercolored the poinsettia like flower which is from Mudra Simply Floral stamp set. I have watercolored using Abandoned Coral and Candied Apple distress ink. I fussy cut it and added it to the card front. Finished my card with beautiful shiny gold sequins from Mudra Stamps and a little Clear Wink of Stella on my flower.

I hope you like my card.
