50dollar_voucher_600pxI must first apologise for the picture – boy did I struggle to get a decent photo of this card!!!  I am not boasting, but this photo does not do the shimmer and glimmer on this card ANY JUSTICE!!!

I water coloured the image using my gorgeous Kuretake watercolour set ( so in love with these).  The beards on the kings are coloured with the pearl paint in the set – it’s like painting with cream!!  I also added a wee bit of gold flakes to the presents – obviously that doesn’t show too well in this awful photo!!
