Snowflakes

I missed the last two challenges that Bitten By The Bug 2 had before they took time out for the holidays. Working retail during the holidays makes crafting a hard thing to do. So I am happy that I'm joining in on their first challenge for 2013. The theme is 'Snowflakes'. They want a new project using a Cricut cut of a snowflake. I went with this one from the Paper Trimmings cartridge. It can be found on page 62. I cut the big one at 3.25 inches and the small ones at 1.50 inches. I cut the shift also which makes the background of the snowflake. I ran the snowflake themselves through my Xyron to glue them up good so I could coat them in Sugar Coating LilyWhite Glitter to give them snow sparkle. The bg is embossed with Time Holtz Alterations Snow Flurries embossing folder. I popped up the big snowflake but not the little ones. I put my sentiment on the inside. It is from the Snow Day stamp set from Cardz TV Stamps. Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)
