Blogger Challenge: Week 288

This week's blogger challenge theme is sparkle and shine. I used one of my Lil' Inker Designs snowflake dies and some sparkly silver paper along with the current sketch from Freshly Made Sketches for this simple, shiny card.

I started with a piece of snowflake patterned paper.  A strip of silver paper, edged with a dark blue mat, runs across the patterned paper.  I used a lighter blue to make a partial background to set the die cut snowflake on.  It's edged in the same darker blue to tie the pieces together.  The "you are one of a kind" sentiment from the Lil' Inker Winter Greetings set is stamped in dark blue ink on the silver strip. The blue ink looks so pretty against the sparkly silver!
