winter wonderland.

good evening all.cor its been a bit fresh today weather wise.i`ve pinched one of hubbys big jumpers to keep warm :)
so onto tonights to say i`m a bit dissapointed that the mega sparkle isn`t really showing up.the edges of the paper and the image panel have been glossed with glossy accents to look like icicles and then i sprinkled cut glass glitter all over to make em sparkle.the cut glass glitter is gorgeous but not suitable for a child as if you rub your finger across once its dry you can cut your fingers, ouch.
anyhoo enough waffle this card is going into the following challenge:
