Simply Sparkling snowflakes

Here is an card that I made using this weeks sketch at Clean & simple. They want to see us use a different shape as our focal point.
I have not got a nestie this shape so I used microsoft word to manipulate the fab curvy winter frame from Whimsy stamps into a rectangular shape and shadow cut it by hand.

I do really struggle with clean and simple style although I love other peoples - I guess we are more critical of our own work !

I finally settled on a black base card so that the icy blue colour would really pop but it was a dicission that took me ages - don't quite know why it just seems so harsh - I might still add a bit more glitter around the edge to soften it a little.

There is a ton of glitter on this card (and my floor, my table and myself !) and it really twinkles beautifully. The glitter I have used is butterfly trails diamond sparkles and it is stunning - I would def reccomend it.

I would like to add this card to the following challenges;

Clean & Simple - Sketch
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Sparkle and shine
Delightful Challenges - Glitter it up
A Spoonful Of Sugar - Snow or snowflakes
Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - Use glitter
