My card is very glossy and shiny this time. 
I kept it in traditional colors and covered all of the details
with clear embossing powder. You can read below how to make it. 

Take 2 pieces of mixed media paper for your backgrounds.

On the bigger one make a frame with the stencil and Candied Apple
Distress Oxide ink and when it's still wet, apply clear embossing powder.
Put it apart and start to build the secod background.

Smear modelling paste through the stars stencil on a 3/4 of your paper.
Cover the whole surface with white paint and when it's still wet, 
dust it with clear embossing powder. You will receive a pretty glossy surface.
Give a touch of light blue using Distress Oxide Ink.

The bottom of the panel just stamp with Distress Oxide Walnut Stain Ink.

Cut the Birthday Wishes Frame die and take off the inside.
Ink the frame with Candied Apple Distress Oxide and sprith with water.
When still wet, dust again with clear embossing powder.
It will only cover the parts without water drops - amazing, right?

Do the same with the Dashing Deer die and brown colors. 
Finish it with some golden paints to give more interest. 

Add some greenery, the sentiment and put all the elements 
using 3D dots to give some more dimension.
