Dazzling Diamonds Snow----DTC39

Happy Tuesday!!
I hope you had a wonderful holiday, I did and luckily my husband ended up having both christmas eve and christmas day off, which doesn't happen very often. Plus he'll be home for new year's eve and new years day too.


Today's card is for this week's digital tuesday challenge. Our hostess Michelle R. wanted to see Dazzling Diamonds glitter used as snow.




I am so thankful for the challenge, because my almost full jar of dazzling diamonds was very neglected, because I've been using stickles glitter for a while now for the ease of use. I realized how much more sparkly dazzling diamonds are and I'll be using them up now for sure. If you look closely you might be able to tell the difference. I used stickles on the punched out snowflakes and dazzling diamonds on the "snow" on the ground and house.

My image is from Soft Pencil, who is our sponsor this week, and they generously let us design team members choose one of their winter scene stamps. They are all so cute, but this one was my favorite.

Paper is from Basic Grey and Stampin up. Sentiment is from Stampin up. Image was colored with Copics. I did some machine sewing with my janome mini, and embellished with some ribbon and punched out snowflakes.

If you're up for a challenge using dazzling diamonds on a snowy scene, why not join us at digital tuesday. You might be the winner of some cute images by Soft Pencil.

Have a fantastic day!
