Flurries of Fun

I have been busy working on some birthday invites for my daughter so I thought I would share this card I made a while back. I submitted it for a contest but it didn't win. Oh well...I like it and I think I am going to make another one so I can have one in my stash! I used Tombow glue to adhere the dazzling diamonds for the snow. It gives it a little more dimension using the glue instead of embossing it. It "snowed" on the ground and some of the tree branches and a few of the snowflakes are glittering too. (I used my stamp-a-ma-jig so that the flakes would be randomly perfect!) I added a few brads to some of the snowflake middles. I love the paper in the Frosty Days dsp pack that had the words in circles...so I used that for the sentiment and punches out a few of the letters to highlight it! I think that's about it!
I am still fighting my cold but I am determined to win!! So I am hoping for a great day...even if I can't breath, hear or smell very good! :) Have a terrific Tuesday and THANK YOU so much for stopping in! **chat at ya later**
