Seeing Spots

Have you ever tried to make a card and just couldn't get it to work out the way you wanted?  That is what happened to me in the process of making this black and pink Christmas card!  I made two different cards I didn't like and ended up using a sketch at Clean & Simple Stamping.
Amazing how finding the right layout can help you to like your card!  Granted, I didn't like it enough to enter it into the pink and black Christmas challenge I was originally making it for, but I still like it okay!
All of my snowflake sets were taken from me with the last retirement...the horror!  I borrowed this retired set from Steph.  Lucky for me there is the awesome Snowflake Soiree in the Holiday Catalog, so I will be getting that one when my order arrives next week. :) 

It's hard to tell from the pic, but the small circles are covered in Crystal Effects and popped up on Dimensionals.  If you are using Crystal Effects on your project, make sure you let it dry overnight so it doesn't ruin your card!
