It's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas!

I have been completely frozen for the past two weeks, so that MUST mean that Christmas is any day now, right? lol I have been snuggled up with my heating pad and electric blanket every single night. I don't know how I am going to survive when it actually decides to snow for real! Since it feels like winter, I decided to make a winter card for the challenge at The Paper Players.
I really liked this sketch and thought it would look great with the Winter Frost DSP stack. Maybe because that is the colors that were in the sketch! lol
I wanted my snowflake to really stand out so I put Tombow Multi Glue on the tips and dipped them in silver glitter. It looks so much better in real life!  It has so much does my entire stamping studio because I am TERRIBLE with this stuff. lol I actually spilled some of the black glitter inside my junk drawer in my studio. Not quite sure how I am going to get it cleaned up...probably gonna have to get out the vacuum and empty it out. That's gonna be a job. :( sentiment is embossed with Silver Embossing Powder. I couldn't get the three little banners to look right on my card, so I substituted with some more rhinestones. :)
