Christmas Lights

I made this card for Friday's Free for All challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. We were to use glitter on our cards. Now I must admit, I am always hesitant to use glitter unless it's Stickles. I make such a mess with loose glitter!!! It ends up everywhere. My poor dog even ends up with glitter on her. Anyway, I used DRS Designs waves, snow, water lines image to stamp the snow drifts and then added some glue and sprinkled glitter along the edges after stamping my sentiment in the corner. The background was created using DRS Designs Snowflakes image. I stamped it in VersaFine, heat embossed in clear and then sponged Bashful Blue, Not Quite Navy and Night of Navy ink all around. I really like the embossed resist technique for backgrounds. My fence is a die and the lights are stickers I found at Hobby Lobby on sale. I really like the look of the lights along the fence - very festive!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,
