Happy World Card Making Day

Happy World Card Making Day to all.  I have a few more cards inspired by Sandy Allnock's Go for the Gold class.  I have been so inspired by these classes, and honestly getting in the "Christmas Spirit".  My cards today are based on day 3.  I am also entering my card in the Simon Says Stamp World Cardmaking Day Contest and my second card in the SSS Wednesday Challenge, Anything Goes.

Inspired by Day 3

I made some enchanted backgrounds using several distress inks and then added color shine.  
So much FUN!
Paper:  Recollections and Neenah
Ink:  Delicata Golden Glitz and Tim Holtz Distress
Dies:  Clearly Besotted, SSS and Impression Obession
Other:  Facetten-Lack Crackling Color, Heidi Swapp Color Shine and Bo Bunny bling

With this card, I used a bit more of the Color Shine. 
It has a bit different look on water color paper.
Paper:  SSS, PTI, Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper and Neenah
Ink:  Versamark and Distress
Stamps:  PTI
Dies:  Nestabilities, PTI and Impression Obession
