Froosty Christmas Wishes

Whew!  I'm finally back to making some cards!  It's been a busy week with the hustle and bustle of the season and trying to get things accomplished before Christmas!  This is my brand new stamp I just received from a friend and I LOVE him (He's available at you should get one for yourself!).  I followed the sketch from Sketch Saturday and I love how it turned out.  The paper I used is My Minds Eye Glitter Christmas stack from last year and I love the browns and blues together.  The circle sentiment was a digital freebie offered by Bizzy Bec's Store Blog and I've used these for most of my Christmas cards this year - I love them!  The snowflakes are actually buttons I found at Joanns and I thought they worked perfectly for this project.  I colored up Froosty and added Diamond stickles just about everywhere - I love how sparkly this card is!  I then inked the edges with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink to coordinate with the papers.  I cut the circle sentiments out with my Circle Spellbinders, which can be found at  Finally, I added turquoise bling to the center of the snowflakes.

Here's another angle:

For the inside, I added more of the same designer paper, added another ribbon, some more of the snowflake buttons and more bling!
