Be Inspired # 59 - Add Glitter or Bling Challenge

Cuttlebug Challenge blog is giving away four, (yes, 4) Oh My Crafts! Christmas embossing folders this week. Want a chance to win? Link your sparkly card here...and you have TWO weeks to do so! I love the look of embossing, and I especially love Core'dinations card stock when it is embossed. The white wash collection reminds me of shining snow. I used the Candy Cane embossing folder and lightly sanded. I punched 6 squares @ 1 1/4" of white wash and 6 squares of BasicGrey Eskimo Kisses (I really only needed 5, since my image covers one up; oh well!) I also used SU pink pirouette and old olive card stock, copic markers, BasicGrey buttons, Nesties, and ribbon from my stash. I purchased that adorable snowman (Inkadinkado) at JoAnn online.

Such a cheeky little snowman. Makes you feel good just looking at him. Great colors and the quilted look is wonderful.
