FTL63 A Blue Christmas and a Glitter Winner

Please note on your calendar that LateBlossom used FIVE layers on one card. Will wonders never cease?

Using the Clean and Simple Blog's FTL63 again. The snowflakes are rock-and-rolled with VersaColor cyan and royal blue. I chose to put large rhinestones on only the three big snowflakes to form a visual triangle. Hopefully, this sort of stabilizes the busyness of those bold, two-toned flakes.

I punched a flake to put next to the sentiment, as per the sketch, but it just cluttered the card up in a way the button didn't on the middle card in this post.

Wow, that was an awkward sentence. Sorry. Hopefully the card's dazzling beauty makes up for it. *wink*

The winner of the glitter is Megan NZ, number 19 of 40! She wrote,

I like the middle one to me it looks like designer paper but more importantly a big cozy quilt to snuggle under on a cold night.

Congratulations, Megan! Please send me your snail mail address so I can send out your glitter!

She was definitely in the minority in favoring Card #2. Card #3 was the winner by a landslide, which goes to show that most of you come here for true CAS cards. Speaking of which...I have a few uber-CAS cards to share tomorrow, so stay tuned!

stamps: PTI Snowflake Serenade, Silent Night
ink: VersaColor
