Snowman Couple

Good Morning everyone, it's time for a new Challenge over at The Crafty Pad, it was my turn to choose the theme this week and I decided to challenge myself and have chosen - Add Some Glitter - it can be anything you like as long as we can see some glitter.

Those of you who know me will be aware that I don't often use glitter, the occasional stickles and that's about it.  Well I remembered why that was when making my card - I managed to get glitter absolutely everywhere, you've never seen such a mess!  My image is The Crafty Pad - Snowman Couple - don't they just look jolly.

I've gone for a silver and white theme with just the splash of blue ProMarker on their hats, gloves and scarves.  The silver is mainly glitter, I'm amazed any managed to get on the card there was so much all over me and my craft room.  I sponged a little background for my snowman couple with distress ink and then embossed some snowflakes onto it, you can just about see it behind them.  I then layered my die cut trees and snowman couple on top of it.  The snowflakes and stars are from my stash and I cut the sentiment from one of last years Christmas cards.

I didn't quite know what to do to decorate the inside of my card because I had not used any designer papers so I kept it very simple using the square that I had die cut from the front of my card and some silver mirror card.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

It does get messy with glitter, but it's worth it:) Your card has such a sweet scene with the die cut trees and snowman, and I like the combination of blue, white and silver - gives such a nice, wintery feel.

I know what you mean about the glitter, I'm trying to use it more (as I've got loads of it!), but it gets everywhere!
