Shimmery snowflakes

Hello crafty friends! I had some play time up in the craft room,
and decided to use a die that I bought last month but hadn't used yet.

...well, the main panel is all shimmery, that is:

and the inside:

I made a bunch of water color-y backgrounds last year, and one of my goals this
year is to actually use them. This one is Dylusions spray inks, then pearl Glimmer Mist
over that, on mixed media paper. I edged the main panel with some black card stock strips
to make it pop more. A simple sentiment and some star shaped rhinestones in the
center of all the snowflakes finishes this card. 

This card was fitting as we had our first decent snow fall yesterday. Ok, maybe it
was only about 2", but it was enough to delay school openings.
Being originally from and growing up in Illinois, I still find this completely hilarious.
(Perhaps more like ridiculous.) As a kid, if the schools closed for a snow day, it would
have had to snow at least a foot before closing was even considered. LOL!

That's all for now. Thanks for visiting. I hope you have a great day!
