***Let it Snow****

I love the way this card came out.  I made it for one of the sketches this week on the Cricut Message board RAQ's Challenge.  The snowflakes were cut from a variety of cartridges, Accent Essentials, A Child's Year (yes there is a snowflake on there) and Don Juan.  I glued them and sprinkled course white glitter on them, the silver one is Martha Stewart glitter.  And added small pearls to the center for more bling.  The tag I cut using the tag feature on A Child's Year and stamped a snowman which I heat embossed with silver.  The saying is a Stampin Up stamp from a past Christmas set. 

The blue strip across the bottom, I Cuttlebugged using Sizzix snowflake folder and sanded it off to show the white core.  This card is very sparkly in person as I sprayed it all with Tattered Angel - Marshmallow, which is quickly becoming my favorite color.   Thanks for visiting and taking a look.
