Warm Winter Wishes

Happy New Year! Time for the first AAA Cards Challenge of 2016! 
Our theme for Game #55 is: Glitter!!!! Use glitter on your newly created project and link up at AAA Cards. The winner will receive a $20 gift certificate from our wonderful sponsor for this week's challenge: Stampendous!


Winter has finally arrived here in the northeastern part of the US. Winter+glitter=snowflakes in my mind for this project. I used glitter to highlight the word "winter" in my sentiment which is done with Winnie & Walter's The Big, the Bold and Seasons stamps. "Winter" is stamped in VersaMark and embossed with SU Heat & Stick powder with glitter sprinkled on top. I combined several blue, pink and purple Twinkling H2Os on a piece of watercolor paper and die cut these wonderful Paper Smooches snowflakes.  Very simple, but the glittery word really adds a touch which indeed makes the whole thing sparkle.

Head on over to the AAA Cards Challenge Blog and see what my wonderful DT partners have created. Pull out that glitter from your stash and see what sparkly, fun project you can come up with. Link up and play along with us. Maybe you will be the lucky winner of a $20 gift certificate from Stampendous!

I also linking up and playing the following challenges:

I love the look of the watercoloured snowflakes - they're so pretty, and the layout keeps the card CAS even though it covers the whole card, it's so nice. Really like this.
