Pearl Season's Greetings

This is my sample card for this week's Clean and Simple Challenge at Splitcoaststampers, where Julie wants us to think "Pearls". 
So for my card I decided to use Pearl Watercolours from Kuretake, and as I did not want a dark background, I used the pearl colour too.
As I normally do, I started this panel by die cutting my stitched rectangle panel using my Gemini.
 I then did my background with a watercolour wash in the pearl. Once dry in my Misti, I stamped my image and heat embossed with a vintage blue embossing powder with glitter pieces in it. I then flicked on pearl coloured paints in the light blue and the ultramarine blue along with silver. To mat my panel I did a second piece going around the edges with the Ultramarine Pearl Colour. Once everything was dry I put the card together on a white card base. 
I heat embossed the greeting using silver embossing powder on pearl coloured vellum, and attached it to my card front using vellum tape.
And to finish I added a few crystals.

I hope you have enjoyed this card and thank you for visiting today.
