Holiday Card Boot Camp Card #1

Well Holiday Card Boot Camp is well underway and I have made 1 card.  not a great start but the week has been a bit crazy at work.  Also I made this card earlier this week but I have been having a terrible time photographing it.  I bought 2 desk lamps, a bunch of different bulbs and wattages, tried to correct in Photoshop (not my strong suit!) and finally resorted to scanning the card.  Trust me when I tell you it looks WAY better in real life!

So here it is:

"Happy Holidays"
I used Distress Stickles in Rock Candy on my snowflake to give it a subtle shine and used DCWV Shimmer Silver paper in behind it to tie it in with the silver embossed sentiment at the bottom.  Here are close-ups of the sentiment and snowflake:
Sentiment from CTMH's Holiday Cheer set

Distress Stickles add a bit of shine to the snowflake

Thanks for looking!

Update:  This card was chosen by Kristina Werner as one of the spotlight cards for week one and let me tell you - I am SUPER excited about it!!!  :)
