All That Glitters

Good Morning.
Meet today's card. 
This card was inspired by this lovely snowflake from Cheery Lynn.  I love the details it has and wanted to showcase it on my card.

I began by creating the blue top of my card.  I used the Splash Watercolour Technique to apply colour using my Distress Oxide inks, then when that was dry I stamped and embossed with silver to give it some shine and a bit of elegance.
I stamped the sentiment using my Misti on my white card front, then embossed the piece using a snowflake embossing folder from Echo Park. 
Next, I used a stitched scallop die to cut the blue portion and glued it over the white embossing above the sentiment leaving enough room to add my die-cut snowflake.
Lastly, I added a silver Nuvo drop in the center of the snowflake.


Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.
