Winter Wishes

I got out the loose glitter this morning!!!  I love the look of it, but hate the mess.  Even being as careful as I can to catch every loose piece, I will still be finding little sparkles all day!  Lol!  But I wanted to give a little elegance to this card--what do you think?

This week's challenge at Stampin' Sisters in Christ is to make something "peaceful" or what says "peace" to you (without using the symbol).  So as I was cleaning off my craft table, I came across this snowflake paper scrap from Basic Grey's "Figgy Pudding."  I thought it looked so peaceful with its almost monochromatic pattern of snowflakes.

I used the patterned paper for my background, and stamped a "Friendship Jar" and masked a lid from Papertrey, Ink's "Friendship Jar" set.  Then I added the snowflake and star dangles from their "Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers."  I had to add all that glitter to give it a frosty look.  After all, if you're going to save some snowflakes in a jar, don't you want the glittery-est ones? lol!

The glitter is from Martha Stewart: antique silver and snow (on the bottom of the jar).  I also used some Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds, but it's not as noticeable in the photo.  I added a mat for the jar from Cricut's "Lacey Labels" and some crinkle ribbon from 3 Girl Jam.  Then it needed  a few pearls to finish it off.  And there's another card ready for my stash!

I'm entering this card in Stampin' Sisters in Christ Challenge # 162.  Thanks for stopping by!
