Just Us Girls #63.....{let it snow}

Oh my sparkle and shine, have we got a challenge for you!?  The Just Us Girls gang has a challenge for you this week that will tempt you to pour it on and then wear you glitter proudly after your project is complete!  :)  Check out the Just Us Girls post for a link to the Sparkley Stained Glass Technique.
Brrrrrrrrr!  I think there is a frost in the air!  I let the gals over at City Crafters inspire me with their Let it Snow challenge this week and I went with a very blue and silver pallette to show off the gorgeous lines of the snowflake stamp from JustRite stamps
Using this technique, the glitter stays trapped behind the transparency but still shines mightily.  I used a single silver bling from Want to Scrap to give the snowflake some 3-D on the front side. A vintage sheet music pinwheel makes a fun background for the glittery snowflake.
These wavy and beglittered vines are from a holiday foliage pick from my local Michaels.  Aren't they lovely?

Speaking of lovely, be sure and check out all of the JUGs girls and also our fabulous guest designer for December, Elise Durenberger!

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you can make time to try this cool technique this week!
