Here's my card set for my entry. This was a difficult entry for me. I had an "idea" in my head what I wanted to do, but when I went shopping for the supplies I discovered that nothing I wanted was even in stock. BIG disappointment. So I had to work with what I could come up with - which wasn't much. There's actually a lot more work that went into these cards than it appears. I'll explain, firstly though I wanted to add that the pics don't do these cards justice. My camera isn't liking the shine/white cs...making some of it look very 'creamy' color. The base is white Bazzill Metallic Pinstrip cs. The patterned paper wasn't bought with the glitter. I wrote over each letter with a versamark pen and applied glitter and embossed. For the dots on the i's I added a gem. The image I stamped and paper pieced the black/red/orange pieces and added Irridescent Ice for glitter. Then I pop-dotted them for dimension. The scallops are handcut and more glitter embossed on. The sentiment stamps are also embossed over with glitter. Here's some more pics for details:

Stunning Tammy! The close-ups definitely show your intricate attention to detail with all the embossing, paper piecing and irridescent glitter. The glimmer cs definitely gives a feeling of a shimmery snowy night! Great job! Good luck!
