Foiling with a die

Hi crafters. I have a card for a few challenges. The technique is based on the current CAS mix up challenge which is embossing with dies. When you use a Hotfoil machine it also impresses into the paper, so I decided to hotfoil and get embossing and foil at the same time. The background is a watercolour look pattern paper. I hotfoiled the Technique Tuesday Mandala Maker die onto the paper with silver iridescent foil. At the same time I foiled a sentiment from the Spellbinders Holiday Sentiments 2 glimmer plates. You can vary the number of shims to get the right result. The glimmer plates are thicker than normal dies, so the debossing is deeper on the sentiment than the mandala. You can see the debossing a bit in the next photo.

I added a few gems plus some 3rd and 4th generation stamping of some wood block snowflakes from Inkadinkado.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

I was going to say foil for my choice but it isn’t there. The background is ombré, does that count?
