Sparkly, wintry Christmas card

I made another wintry Christmas card - once again, using a technique demonstrated by Laura Bassen in the latest Online Card Class, Background Check.  I coloured some white embossing paste with Distress Inks, then applied it over a stencil from Hero Arts.  I then sprinkled on some sparkly embossing powder and waited for the paste to dry before I heat set the embossing powder. This is definitely one of those times when a photo just doesn't do the card justice - there is just so much twinkly, sparkly goodness to this card!
I will be sharing this card over at Virginia's View Challenge.
I'll also be sharing this card over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - this week, it is Anything Goes.

STOP PRESS!!  Before you go!! 

I have something special planned on my blog - beginning on the 5th of August, and going all week! I  will be taking inspiration from superstars from the cardmaking world (serious superstars), there will be lots of cards and multiple giveaways! Stay tuned!

Thanks for visiting!  :)
