I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas


We had just a tiny bit of snow here on Saturday morning- nothing that accumulated, but enough to remind you that Christmas is almost here. My image is from Sassy Studio Designs. I colored it with my copics, and added lots of stickles and Martha Stewart snow glitter. I think I have decided this gives a better snow effect than the white Flower Soft. I punched the icicle border out of silver glitter paper, and used a wonderful piece of antique metallic gold lace on my border.

This is a very sparkly card that I made for the following challenges:
Sassy Studio Designs: inspired by icy picture
The Fresh Batch: sketch
Pink Elephant: Your favorite Christmas colors
Digital Tuesday: Christmas Sparkle
Cupcake Crafts - Sing a Christmas Carol (White Christmas)
Whimsy- Die Cuts (Martha Stewart icicle punch)
Saturday Spotlight with Hidden Potential - Christmas flowers
Stampin for the Weekend- red, green, gold
Crafty Creations- lace and distressing
Crafty Catz- Red, green, silver
