Speaking of Sparkle!

Hey there!! A Monday post-that's just not like me!  Well, this was actually a card I made yesterday for the Featured Stamper on Splitcoast Stampers.  I was inspired by a card to use these SU dies that had never touched paper!  And now they have!

 I also want to mention, remind that the Just Us Girls word challenge this week is SPARKLE!! I added lots to my card and the DT at JUGS wants to see your sparkle! Details are on our BLOG.
 I'm sure this card took me more steps than were necessary, but I had a vision of what I wanted and I enjoyed every minute-even the tries that had to be thrown out!  The scene with the trees is the white card base. I die cut a scrap to make a pattern for where to place the snow hills and trees. I cut the smaller SU die out of white card stock.  The I cut the larger one out of pool party card stock.  Of course, I had to make sure that they lined up.  I sponged the white one with coastal cabana and then used a copic marker on the 'embossed' edge to darken it.  I used a Memory Box snowflake border stencil on the pool party layer and used a sponge and stencil brush to apply coastal cabana ink in order to make the snowflakes show up.  Some of those tiny holes were hard to get color into!  The two top layers were put together with foam tape pieces and then the whole thing was adhered to the card front with double sided tape.
My sparkle is Prisma glitter and Stardust Stickles.  Oh yes, I also stamped a tiny snowflake image around the trees and snow in pool party.
The polar bear cutie is from My Favorite Things Cold Day set.  I looooove these guys!  More to come with them.
Well, I gotta finish supper and try to get some crafty time in this evening!
thanks so much for visiting!!
