Glitter & Gold

Hello everyone,

Today's card is all about glitter and snowflakes. It is a card, like earlier this week, that meets a ton of challenges. I started with today's Friday Sketchers sketch challenge. Tuesday offered a glitter challenge from Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and snow or snowflakes from A Spoonfull of Sugar. On Wednesday the ABC Challenge was a holiday card, Caardvarks asked for a holiday card with die cuts and For Fun Challenges wanted dry embossing. This week's Cute Card Thursday is an anything goes challenge, the Terrifically Thrilling Thursday challenge was anything goes with Christmas and Thursday's Just Add Ink challenge was a Christmas Card. Finally, today's Christmas Stamping All Year Long is looking for stripes. Ten challenges, one card, amazing!

The background layer, the horizontal stripe and the sentiment layer are a shimmery gold paper of unknown origin. The patterned layer is Anna Griffin Georgette Christmas which is textured with Sizzix Snowflakes. The horizontal gold stripe and the Stampin' Up shimmery white layer are textured with Cuttlebug's Winter Wonderland folder. The vertical stripes are Stampin' Up Soft Suede covered with Glitter Ritz warm transparent micro fine glitter. The focal image is a scrap of Stampin' Up Very Vanilla covered with more micro fine glitter over which a Peel Off's Xmas Ball sticker was applied. The snowflakes are Spellbinder Build a Snowflake 1 and 2. The sentiment is Cornish Heritage Farms Vintage Christmas Expressions.

I love this card. The shimmery gold paper has to be one of my favourite papers ever. Of course, you can never use too much glitter.

I hope you enjoy this card and come back to SPI again soon.
