Christmas in July - two cards

Good evening everyone....
I was playing around with one of my CTMH stamp sets....
I made two cards but the picutres didn't turn out that well ..
 this is more what the masked one looks like in person with the shimmer... 
it is really nice
 the background of the below one is from versa mark ink 
 I also used a white gel pen and gold pen to highlight the embossing 
 I think you can see the shimmer better in the above
below you  can see both again but the shimmer mist one looks blotchy but IRL it doesn't look like that.   

 I started playing around because of the below challenges - thanks... it always inspires me

christmas in July
other challenges 
jingle belles - red or green not both 

Less is more - CAS

Sending hearts...
