Dreaming of a White Christmas

I was inspired by a few challenges to make this card......

 CASology week#11~White

PPA143~A Clean and Simple Sketch 

Splitcoaststampers TLC395~Rolled Flowers 

Jingle Belles~Dashing Through the Snow 

I love this Memory Box Bianca Snowflake Die that my evah so sweet friend Betsy sent me~ I just had to sparkle it up! I did this using a Sizzix Adhesive sheet and some iridescent glitter.  I paired it up with an MFT Rolled Flower Die and glittered up as well. The dry embossed Snowflakes is a Cuttlebug Folder. I really wish the companies would print the name on them!!!!! I added some bits of glitter with a glue pen.

 The lace looks cream in the picture but I assure you it is a beautiful crisp white lace made by Prima. I added a strip of half inch Scor-tape and burnished some glitter into it.   I embossed with silver a sentiment from Stampin'Up's A Christmas Carol Set then had to add pearls where I dropped the stamp and had a small splotch of  Versamark. Never a mistake....only the crafting gods telling me I need to add an embellishment.

Thanks for stopping by and have a most fabulous day!!
