Be Merry and Bright

Good morning, Stampin' Friends! Today I'm sharing this lumpy bumpy and super sparkly snowflake card. I grabbed the sweet sketch over at Mojo MondayI loved the new ColourQ challenge, so my colors are Breeze, Lagoon, Cranberry, Pear, and White Daisy. The Breeze CS is embossed with a cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder, then sanded lightly to bring out the flakey goodness. The whole card front is built on some fabulously sparkly iridescent white glitter cardstock!
I used silver glitter glitz on my snowflake diecut, along with lots of sparkles pretty much everywhere, including highlighting that fancy ampersand as inspired by Laurie Willison over at Muse Card Club. I painted the frame for my label diecut with Red Shimmer polish after swiping it with Cranberry ink to make sure I would be getting the right tone of red. I used the same shimmer polish to add red highlights to the gems on my sparkly snowflake. I wish I was better at photography, because the photos do not capture the true sparkle of this card!

I'm also linking this project up to the Festive Friday Final Challenge (for the Element challenge of adding a snowflake) and the Paper Issues Christmas Linky party!
