PPA123 & Less is More Challenge

Hi All,
Well another Saturday and another challenge (or two!). I went on over to Pals Paper Arts Blog and they challenged us to "Put on the Ritz" with our card. After checking out that challenge I went on over to the Less is More Blog. Their challenge was to complete a single layer card with the theme of "Let it Snow". So I "mashed" them together and this is what I came up with:
The card is one layer of Not Quite Navy. I hope you can see (my photography skills leave a lot to be desired) that I ran it through the Big Shot Snowflake embossing folder, then I sprayed it with Vanilla Shimmer and stamped the trees from Christmas Lodge and the sentiment from Short and Sweet with Frost White paint and finally I placed some sticky back rhinestones on the points on the snowflakes. I wish I could capture the "shine" this card has!! I love the effect of all the glitz!!
Have a great night!
Karin
