So how do you like the twine? I LOVE it and was so excited when Sweet 'n Sassy began carrying The Twinery's product! This card features two Sweet 'n Sassy stamps sets; Light of Christmas (this has turned into my favorite text stamp) and Snowflake Silhouettes. I used a fun new technique to create the snowflake background; stamping on canvas and embossing with white embossing powder. Once I had embossed the snowflakes I covered the entire piece of canvas with Distress Ink (Broken China and Tumbled Glass) and then spritzed the entire piece with Perfect Pearls. The Perfect Pearls creates a great shimmer! I frayed the edges of the canvas for that rustic look. A big of distressing, thanks to my Pumice Stone Distress Ink, a sentiment, a sparkly flower, rhinestones, and that lovely twine, in Charcoal, were the finishing touches!

I hope you enjoyed the card! Your next stop on the hop is Jenny Suchin. Don't forget to leave a comment on each of the blogs for a chance to win! Have fun!!
