Sparkling Snowflake

Can you guess why the fairly clean and simple card is one of my favorites?  If you guessed glitter, sparkle, shimmer, glimmer or dazzle you're right. :)   I wish I could show you in person just how pretty it is.  If you are on my Christmas card list you just might get to.

This year I've been using my new favorite accessory, heat and stick powder, to create glittery wintry scenes.  Please excuse the way I sound in the video below. My allergies have been really bad, but I wanted to film this for you before Christmas.

Note:  You may need to visit my blog to view the video.  Click on the post title "Sparkling Snowflake" if you want to go to my blog post now.

It's so pretty that I think I might make another card just to display on my shelf for January.  In the video I mention my Dazzling Diva Winner card.  CLICKY to go to that post if you missed it the first time around.

I'm linking up to SSS Wednesday challenge.  The challenge is "Let It Snow".  Perfect card, don't you think?  :)

Ah, yay-ah, I definitely agree that this is the perfect card and it should be a winner in that challenge, Heather! It is almost impossible to photograph shine and shimmer and so the fact that I can SEE the shine and shimmer in the photograph just shows how sparkly this card must look IRL!! Excellent!!

If I don't get back before Christmas, I wish you the happiest holiday and new year!! Hugs, Darnell

This is so beautiful, Heather. I know how much it sparkles in real life as I have made a card like this before. So pretty!
