My Minds Eye

I made this card for the Monday House Mouse and Friends Challenge. The challenge was to glitz up your card. Usually that is not hard for me to do. I love dazzling diamonds and the more bling the better! However, I had a hard time with this card. I wanted to use the paper from My Minds Eye, Festive & Frost that I purchased at Michaels for 40% off. There's lot of sparkly paper in this pad and the colors really appealed to me. Not your typical christmas colors, ykwim? I coordinated the paper with Sage Shadow, Chocolate chip and blush blossom.
I embellished the card with some May Arts Velvet Ric Rac and some lucious chocolate chip satin ribbon. I added Prima flowers and some Prima Center Kisses. And then for the finishing touch I added some Heidi Swapp Ghost Snowflakes! I am loving these Ghost Shapes. You can embellish your cards without having to worry about them coordinating with colors! You all know that I am color challenged at times! lol!
I hope that you are enjoying your day and find the time to create all those beautiful projects that I love to see.
