a green, grey and white sparkly tree

Well it snowed a couple of inches so this card goes with the snow outside! I have created this card for 3 challenges.

Midnight Madness Sketch #83-Fancy
Colour Create Challenge #59-Grey, green and white
Penny Black Challenge #139-stamp on anything but white
Penny Black at Allsorts-December Challenge-Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Well, I used one of my favorite Penny Black stamps, AGAIN! I embossed it with snowflake embossing powder. The saying is embossed the same way and is StampinUp. I alternated gems and pearls around the image. The papers are Magenta and Sandylion. I ran the white panel through the snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder. The Snowflakes are by Joanne Crafts. This card is more sparkly in real life. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. A great job on the embossing Julie and I love the Tree image. I bet it sparkles beautifully in real life. I also have the same problem getting sparkle to show up on my photographs.
