Paper Princess Challenge #4

   Good Sunday morning!  I have another Paper Princess blogging challenge to share with you today!  The challenge was to make a side step card with a winter or Christmas theme!  This was a challenge for me because I have never made one, but it turned out to be simpler than I thought!  Wheeeee!  Love it when that happens!  I am kinda of tickled with how it came out!  Mostly because there is so much shimmer it practically lights up the room!  I do love my shimmer!! :o)

 I had fun with this card!  There is an inch of  'torn' snow on the ground and lots of snow falling from the sky.  The giant snowflake has a rhinestone in the center and every snowflake on the card has a touch of dazzling details!  I would buy that stuff by the bucket full if I could! :o)  The snowguys  mittens, scarf and hat brim are Cherry Cobbler to add a tiny bit of pop.  

This measures larger than a standard A2 card and would make a cute table centerpiece!  

Recipe:
Stamps: Jolly Old Saint Nick (retired) and Lovely as a Tree
Paper: Marina Mist and Whisper White
Ink: Marina Mist and Baja Breeze
Extras: Rhinestone, Dazzling Details and  Snowflake punch

See all that fun shimmer?!  It really sparkles!

Well, the count down clock has smoke starting to come off of it!  7 little sleeps til Christmas day! Still lots of merry to create and things to do! 

Have a wonderful day!  I will be back soonest!
