Penny Black Snowy Park

Hi! An easy, sparkly card to share today. The most difficult part was photographing it because of the glitter and embossing powder.

Using Staz-on ink, this Penny Black image was stamped on white cardstock covered with Sparkle n Sprinkle Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter. Stampin' Sistah Shona Erlenborn documented a fantastic tutorial using Velvet Glitter and Staz-on Ink here.

The mirror cardstock was dry embossed with Craft Concepts Tuscan Tiles embossing folder (looks a little like snowflakes after sanding).

The following Sparkle n Sprinkle products were used on this card and can be found in their on-line store:

SNS mirror cardstock
SNS Americana embossing powder
SNS Cloud Nine Velvet Glitter GM2000
SNS Super Adhesive Sheets SAS02
SNS Brushable Glue #540
SNS Double Sided Tear-ific Tape SAT01

One last try for glitter:

I give up! 
It looks pretty in person!

This card is entered in the following challenges:
Challenges 4 Everybody - Anything Goes #9
Come and Get It Challenges - Dec 16 Anything Christmas
Dream Valley Challenges - #47 Christmas
Eclectic Ellapu - #10 Anything Goes
Great Impressions - December Challenge Anything Goes

Snowy Park looks really great done in the shade of blue Donna, don't think mine got an airing this Christmas, but it's an image I really like.

Gorgeous Donna ! I love your card ! I can see the glitter in the 2nd photograph, (it's difficult to capture on camera, I know). The blue & white look so elegant together, love the frame and white die cuts, and the beautiful touch with the sheer fabric. Have a wonderful day, Shirleyx
