Snowflake Sticker

Over at 52CCT there's a stash challenge - use stickers. I've got tons of stickers from the time before I had any stamps and did other crafty things than cardmaking. If I'm not mistaken, this snowflake sticker should be at least 5 years old. So it was time to get it used!

The card has several layers of silver mirri card, glitter paper and blue panels. When I first had decided on the design the card came together quickly.
I kept wanting to add a sentiment or some ribbon, but finally settled with a clean layout and only added 13 rhinestones.

It's quite tricky to take photographs of cards with so much sparkle and shine, but I hope you can imagine how it looks IRL.

This card is for these challenges:
1) 52 Christmas Card Throwdown - July Blog Hop + Stash Stickers
2) Craftyhazelnut's Christmas Challenge - #185 Glam it up!
3) jingle belles - Something from Stash at least 1 year old
4) Shopping Our Stash - Bonus Challenge with jingle belles
5) Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge Extra - Anything Christmas
6) Love to Create - Fussy & Fancy OR Clean & Layered

    This is so pretty, it is a real pain to catch the beauty in a photo. I get so annoyed. If you click to enlarge this one you can see the beauty a bit better. Awesome sweetie.

    You did a fabulous job! They are so hard to photograph and yours looks great. I can see the sheen and the sparkle!
    I have lots of stickers too and I am trying hard to use them up!

    Thanks for the kind words about the bear card. You Are right that my upset over forgetting the ingredients for the card, has flavoured my opinion of it!

    This is gorgeous!!! I just love snowflakes; they are all so stunning. Wish I could see this card in real life, because I know the picture is not doing justice to the silver card or the sparkle paper. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
