Shiny and Bright

I recently did the math on the coming year (ok, so it's not really coming, it's here, but you get the idea) and realized if I want to send handmade cards this holiday season they will HAVE to be done before July. Yes, you read that right. There are many things going on and I simply cannot be sure the time for card making will be there in the fall, so I am starting NOW. My plan is really to find three designs I like and repeat as many times as needed. Sometimes you just have to take the easy road. KWIM?

So to jump things off right I went looking at the Christmas challenge blogs for a little inspiration because really my soul is celebrating spring right now and no part of me is looking forward to winter.

And so here is my sparkly card.

I embossed the snowflakes in white and then essentially colored with glitter. I added a little sentiment and a few extra pieces of bling. Of course, the picture doesn't do this one justice...The card base is made from shimmery paper too. I think maybe a little bit of the cheery spring excitement made it's way through.
