I love frosty nights and warm hearts

Hello and happy Monday. Today i have to show a picture of a card i am so dissapointed with. I have tried 2 days in a row to get a nice picture of this card - but it simply did not work out. The weather was not very nice over the weekend.

This card really sparkles so pretty!!! I used Stampin up's Heat and Stick powder to adhere Dazzeling Diamond Dust. The stamp i used to add the swirls to the background paper is from Stampin up "Baroque Motifs". One of my all time favorite stamps cause it is so versatile!!!! Tilda is watercolored and i used lots of Twinkeling H2o paints to give the image also shimmer. Stickles is used on the scallops.

Stamps: This Magnolia stamp I love this stamp and will defenetly use her very soon on my cards again :-) i do not know the name of this stamp but it is a 2007 winter collection stamp.
Sentiment: Elzybell (isnt this perfect??? i bought last month a whole bunch of them)
Swirl from Debbies Die Cuts. You have to check her store.. she has so many wonderful die cuts!!!! Plus she will cut for you in any color cs you want for your project.
Stampin up: Baroque Motifs for the swirls
Other: Prima Marketing flowers , bottom flower was sent to me by my sweet friend Carole
circular silver embellishements were found at Archivers in the wedding section
Before i forget again ... have you seen that Carmen has something on her blog? check out Carmens Candy

Hi Claudia, Another gorgeous creation. Look at all that sparkle! Amazing! We too had gloomy weather this week-end which we spent clearing our basement for our upcoming renovation! Yuck! Too much stuff - how did we accumulate it all??? Hugs Jeanette
