If Kisses were Snowflakes....Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies Challenge

Hello!

What a whirlwind this Christmas break has been! We've been home since Wednesday and the days have flown! Back to work tomorrow! Good thing I 'practiced' waking up early this past week *grin*

Today, I'm thrilled to share my first DT card for the monthly Happy Little Stampers January Anything Goes with Dies Challenge


Have you seen the oh-so-pretty frosty-and-fabulous inspiration board over at The Heart Desires Challenge #8?  I did!  Swoon!


The lovely array of snowflakes on the cake (coupled with the real snowflakes sprinkling  here) saw me reaching for my Poppy Stamps Snowflake Love Pendant die, which I paired with shimmer papers in a couple shades of blue...


As many of you know, photographing 'shimmer' is challenging, so a second photo is included in an 'effort' to capture the colours better. The pendant portion is adhered only on the top, so it hangs much like a 'pendant' off the card. The trio of single snowflakes are glued in the center only. The card actually has more dimension than what the image shows...really! A sparkly navy bit of bling in the heart's center and ta dah...done!  The sentiment is from Uniko's Stunning Snowflakes set.


Please be sure to check out the fabulous cards created by the rest of the team.   Kylie's offering a marvelous prize, so please be sure to join us!


See you in the gallery!

  2. Shiny card is indeed a nightmare to photograph, some silver on a card of mine looked gold as it reflected back the colour of the wood on the windowsill!
    Gorgeous use of those fab die cuts. :0)

  24. Carol!!! I have been thinking of you so much. Thank you for all your wonderful comments of late. I am hanging by a thread trying to craft, comment on the DT blogs, to visit friends' blogs, and do life - you know the drill. I'm always watching though! This card is so fantastic I can't stand it. The shimmery paper with these gorgeous dies is amazing, and I love the way you've "hung" them. Just wonderful. Love the shadows in the picture. I hope you are well and happy - you sure have been creating up a storm, and so beautifully.xx
