Feature Friday Challenge – Shiny/Foil Snowman Christmas Card

This month at The Character Cafe, it's all about sparkle, shine and bling.  This week, we've been challenged to use foil or shiny stuff on our card.

Kendra has also posted an important, yet disappointing message on the blog.  So pop over and have a read.

Now, over at Crafty Cardmakers, they've challenged us to show our "latest and greatest," along with our "First efforts."  Now, I'm not sure about greatest, but here's my latest.

I really LOVE this particular paper pack.  I love colors of course, but I also love that they're already glittery.  I walk around with enough glitter all over me!  LOL. 

Now, for the other part of the challenge...showing my first effort.... goes.

Jessica, both your cards are lovely. I have the same punch that you have used on your first card to such great effect.

Your latest is gorgeous, and the papers and image gel so beautifully.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year and thanks for joining our First and Last Challenge at Crafty Cardmakers. Hope to see you back next year.
