Hello All! Being a little short on time today, I've combined two of yesterday's challenge ... the Crafty Secrets Forum Challenge over on SCS and the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #22. The Crafty Secrets challenge was the "Make It Shine" ... I wished my photo was better because the Brillance Sky Blue ink I've used over the Snowflake embossing and on the orament has a beautiful sparke to it as well as the Doodlebug sugar coated brads used on the Martha Stewart snowflakes.
Stamps: Crafty Secrets (Christmas Joy)
Paper: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Ink: Brillance Sky Blue, Night of Navy
Accessories: Cuttlebug Snowflake EF, Fiskars decal scissors, The Ultimate teal Glitter Gel Pen, Pop Dots, Martha Stewart snowflake punch, Doodlebug sugar coated brads, Gelly Roll Clear Star pen
I hope you enjoyed my card. Thanks for stopping by today!

  5. WOW Darlene this is soooo pretty!!! I LOVE these colors together and the texture and snowflakes...BEAUTIFUL!

  6. Oh it is very elegant! Love the shine in this card. You do know this also works for the Design Dollies challenges don't you. I think you've got three types of shine on it. the white, black, and blue one I made today only had two, I didn't read the challenge very well. Anyways, I added some glitter to make it count. Check it out. This is just gorgeous! Yummy black snowflakes!!!!!
