My photo is taken at a very hard angel because this is the only way to show you the gold sparkle created with suduko gel pen I have around the border, all over the textured snowflakes panel and the stars on the main panel. I love how this turned out and guess what? NO white card stock. GASP!!! I know some of you are giggling at this right now, since you thought that first thing when you click on it.  :-)  I masked and stamped Snow Scenes onto Classic Kraft card stock and layered onto some Color Made Easy Emerald Coast card stock. Textured my panel and layered down gold mesh fiber and gold cord I have had sitting her for awhile. The beautiful designer paper is from Bo Bunny Snow Day paper pack. Voila!

Check out the creations from the Design Team:
Be sure to check out the Flourishes Blog tomorrow for World Card Making Day! We have a fun filled day planned for you!
