Addicted to Stamps Challenge - Photo Inspiration


Hi everyone ~
It's time for another challenge at Addicted to Stamps & More Challenge Blog, and this time we have a photo to inspire you! Happy Little Stampers  will be sponsoring this challenge and the winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the store!

Here is my card:



I did just a little blending with Malibu ink on the background, then added embossing paste and clear glitter on to SSS Falling Snow stencil. I then placed a red felt bow and a few red gems to the sprig, and die cut an oval from the top panel, and finished with the sentiment and banner. Here is a close up of the falling snow:



I would also like to add this card to Virginia's View Challenge 'It's all about Texture' ~


 
So, that's it for me...Please be sure to stop by the Addicted to Stamps & More Blog and check out all the beautiful creations by my team mates ~ We would also love to have you play along!

Thanks so much for stopping by ~ Have a great week,
