H2H Challenges: Snow Much Fun

It's time for the first Heart 2 Heart challenge of the new year, and our theme is "snow much fun!"  I am so excited to be heading up the H2H blog, and I look forward to getting to know so many of you faithful readers and challenge participants better.
 We've only had a light dusting of snow so far this year, so I decided to make a festive card using our NEW glitter paper!  (It will be available beginning 2/1 in two packs: one black, gray, and silver, and the other in brown, gold, and bronze.)  These snowflakes were cut with the Cricut CTMH Art Philosphy cartridge.
My card design came straight from the Make It From Your Heart, Vol. 1 how-to guide.  The Crystal Blue and White Daisy panels were spritzed with a mixture of Crystal Blue reinker, Create-A-Shade Pearl Paint, and water.  The Slate piece was spritzed with a pearl paint/water mixture.  I'm not sure how well you can see it here, but it adds a lovely subtle shimmer to the card pieces.  I also random stamped snowflakes onto the Crystal Blue panel and the Greeting sentiment in Slate (all from the 2011 October stamp of the month).
I decided to paint the edges of the two largest panels with more pearl paint for more "snow."  Do you see how I used the Slate polka dot ribbon?  It has a really nice satin sheen.  Finally,  I used a glitter button and a rhinestone button to add more glitz to the card.

Now it's your turn to show off your snowy projects!  Just link up to the H2H blog by the end of the month!  Hope to see you there!

A shimmery delight! I love the use of the satin polka dot ribbon to give extra visual texture and the pearl painted snow on the edges. I don't use the pearl paint very often and its always so beautiful whenever I see a project with it.
