More Glitter and Gold

Hello everyone,

It's is most certainly the time of year for holiday cards and the blogging world is just overflowing with challenges for these types of cards. For the second time in less than a week, today's card actually meets ten different challenges. I started with Saturday's Card Patterns sketch. Monday's Little Paper Shop challenge was to use a die cut. Tuesday challenges include ABC Christmas Challenge 'X' is for Xmas and Flourishes Timeless Tuesday was Christmas. Wednesday's Caardvarks challenge was to craft a Christmas card with die cuts. Today's challenges include Simon Says Stamp which asked for sparkle; Treehouse Thursday Challenge asked for glitter; Delightful Sketches asked for a winter card; Paper Play is looking for snow and the Stampin' B's asked for snowflakes.

The card base is Recollections pearlized gold. The snowflake paper is Anna Griffin Georgette Christmas layered on a piece of Stampin' Up Shimmery White. The ribbon is from Offray. The corner pieces are Sizzix Architectural Accents #3. The snowflakes are Spellbinders Build A Snowflake 1 & 2. Both of these elements are cut from the Anna Griffin paper glittered with Glitter Ritz Cool micro fine glitter. The embellishments are Close To My Heart pearl Opaques. The sentiment is Gina K Vintage Borders stamped in Soft Suede on another piece of Shimmery White.

I love this card. It actually has a very similar feel to last Friday's Glitter and Gold card because I used the same Anna Griffin paper and die cuts. I love the coolness of these snowflakes and the glittering elements. The paper is also flocked which adds more wonderful texture to the card.

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