                      Nancy - You are here

The design inspiration for this card started with a sketch from "Seems a Little Sketchy."
For my card, I used the pre-colored image of Snow Lady - Light Up Your Holidays. Isn't she just the cutest!!! I used a narrow embossing folder with snowflakes in Heavenly Blue cardstock then sanded over the raised images. 
The "Season's Greetings" is from PaperTrey Ink.
With a Ball Point Glue Pen I added dots of glue for the snow in the sky with prisma glitter. I used the glue pen on each of the lights and used coordinating MS glitter.

Your secret word on my blog is "is"
Your next stop on the hop is Zehra's blog.  
Winners will be selected on November 23, 2012 at 12:01 EST.
