Friends and Glitter

We are back to another Monday and a new Friends of Speedy TV challenge.  This week, we are all about the glitter, no matter how hard it is to photograph.  Perhaps, I should have gone with a silver glitter on my snowflakes, but I wanted them to look frosted, so I opted for some white glitter.  They do look frosted, but it's super hard to capture in a picture.  The glitter challenge instantly made me think of Christmas cards, so I resurrected the Winter Scenes set and used a sentiment and the snowflakes.  I liked the idea of the light blue base to work on.  Now that I think about it, I wonder if the white glitter would show up better on a navy blue.  Since this was a quick card, maybe I will try that next.  I wouldn't mind having a couple of these on hand.  It's really flat and super mailable!
Don't forget that Mark's Finest Papers is quite generous and offers a free stamp set to one lucky participant.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

A very pretty card - pain to get a good photo with glitter though! Darker blue might show more but I do like the pretty pale blue.
