Red Snowflakes & the Return of Prettie Wednesday!

Good morning all! I am excited to share this card with you today! When I started making my samples with Paper Pretties new Snowflake Kisses set I felt like I was always using blue . . . I guess snowflake and winter just make me think blue. So when I sat down to make a card with the large snowflake I wanted something different! I found this great Memory Box paper that has a tiny design on it resembling snowflakes and that was all I needed!

I love this card!! (can I say that?!) First of all, the cardstock is Shimmery White from SU! I cut out a circle with my Nestabilities and then cut out a scalloped frame from the Memory Box paper (I used the remaining circle of dp on the inside of the card - see below). I also cut out an acetate circle and stamped my snowflake on it with White Stazon. Then I used my glue pen and added some Dazzling Diamonds glitter to the back side of the snowflake for some real sparkle and shine! Add the ribbon and the sentiment stamped in Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy - done! Here's a shot of the inside of the card, I added a layer of the dp to the inside to cover where the acetate is glued on.

Oh and the final touch? This ginormous Swarovski crystal that Christie sent me. Pretty huh? At first I thought it might be too big . . . but no way! I love it! :)

I have another red snowflake themed card that I'll come back and share later.

So the Prettie Girls have started our Wednesday challenges again and we're inviting you to play along! Every Wednesday one of us will issue a challenge, we have a week to complete the project and mail it to another Prettie Girl and then post it the following Wednesday (so this week's challenge cards will be posted 1/30) - which means you will have 2 weeks to play along! Today's challenge is given by Christie and is a color challenge - light yellow (ex: Barely Banana), light blue and apricot. Let me know if you take the challenge by linking your creation here!

Have a great day everyone!
