Sparkly Snowflakes

Today's bingo piece is...the stocking!  Mark your cards.

The card I'm sharing today is definitely not the traditional holiday colors...and that works for me!  It's actually the same colors as this card from Kathy's party, but the combination looks so different when there's so much white space.  I used my Big Shot and the Northern Flurry decorative strip die to cut out these great snowflakes from Rose Red, Elegant Eggplant, and Baja Breeze.  Then I put a few snowflakes into the Color Catcher (an absolute must!  Unless you want a glittery table, that is) and sprayed these with the Smooch Spritz.  I used both Silver Foil and Vanilla Shimmer, and decided that I like the Vanilla Shimmer slightly more than the Silver Foil--it gives the snowflakes a subtle shimmer.  So subtle, in fact, that you might not be able to catch it in the picture.  But trust me, it's there and it's pretty!

The final touch for this card is the sentiment, from Four the Holidays and inked in Rose Red to match the snowflakes.  I just might send this one to a friend who moved South, and probably won't be seeing any snow for Hanukkah this year.
