Another One for the Box

Hello, and thanks for popping in.  I've had another play with the Tim Holtz Textured Snowflake, cutting a few in Acetate and Vellum.
The background was cut from a masterboard that had been dipped in various blue inks with some random music script stamped in Chipped Sapphire. I randomly stamped a snowflake with Versamark and brushed on some Perfect Pearls -very difficult to see in the photo, before matting on silver card.
I used my finger to spread adhesive on the acetate snowflake before covering with a filament type glitter that has been in my stash for ages, this was attached to another cut from vellum.  I added a self adhesive rhinestone to the center, which when I've looked at the photo has disappeared! (this card was a nightmare to photograph, so I won't edit it).  The sentiment was cut from the Tim Holtz Holiday words.
The weather forecast isn't too good for the weekend, so hopefully I'll get some more Christmas cards in the box.

I am entering this at ABC Christmas Challlenge - W for Wishes

Have a great weekend, whatever you're doing.

Such a pretty snowflake had to be worth popping in for! However I'm hoping that they stay up on the hills for a while longer in my neck of the woods! Hope you have a crafty weekend.
