On The Seventh day of Christmas.

Day 7 of the Frosted Designs 12 days of Christmas Challenge.
On the Seventh Day of Christmas my True Love said to me please use 7 Sparkly Snowflakes.

I used a  plain blue card for the  base and then a darker slightly textured cardstock fpr the front. Snowflakes were cut using Sizzix Snowflakes die  655628 from thin cardboard packaging and painted with Jo Sonja  acrylic paint. I then gave them a coating of Glossy Accents  and a sprinkling of turquoise glitter whilst still wet. The sentiment is a freebie stamp from a magazine stamped onto white card and then cut  using Sizzix Decorative Label set 656322.

A close up showing the sparkle on the snowflakes. I kept the card simple and let the flakes do the talking!!

Entering into the following challenges:
Frosted Designs: On the Seventh Day of Christmas.
That Craft Place: Snowy Christmas.
Card Craft Mania: Snow Flakes.
Craft us Crazy: Christmas/New Year.Altered 3D.
Aud Sentiments: Anything with a Sentiment.
