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!
