Cute Card Thursday!

The challenge over at Cute Card Thursday this week is 'lots of sparkle'! So this is what I created!

I decided to use one of my new Elzybells stamps that I got this week. I am in LOVE with them! This image is from the Christmas Dinkies set, coloured with my whispers. I have stamped some snowflakes on the background and added glamour dust to them. I then added snowtex (3D snow effect paint) and glamour dust again to create the illusion of snow.It's the first time I have used this and am really pleased witht the result. Here is a close up so you can hopefully see the sparkle a little better.

Doodle border added to the image and matted onto green CS. Background paper was free from a a magazine and matted onto green CS again. Right side of card embossed with snowflake folder, sentiment from a studio G clear set. The white snowflake brads are from the papermania brad caddy!

I am really pleased with this card, I love the colours and think it's really christmassy!

Thank goodness it's friday. Lie in tomorrow and no work until monday! Yipee! Enjoy your last day at work everyone!
