Merry Christmas

I wasn't thrilled with my first version of the galloping horses so I remade it. I've made the card 5.5" x 7" so I could change the layout a bit. I added scenery behind the horses and stamped snowflakes on the outer edge of the base card.  I embossed the green layer in the large snow flakes ef and the horses were embossed with paste. This panel was put through a crimper prior to being cut with a nesties small rectangle die. The greenery behind the poinsettia was sprayed with gold perfect pearl mists to give them some shimmer. The sentiment was cut with a Quikutz die. I then sprayed Perfect Pearl Mists- Pearl over the whole card to give the effect of a snowstorm.  IRL this card real shimmers! To me it's a totally new card so I am submitting to a couple of challenges.
