Let It Snow - Silver - Double The Pleasure

Good Morning, Good Morning, Good Morning. Since Monday, I'd been thinking about the card I wanted to make for Mojo Monday.....

Here it is: The card went together very easily...however, when I went to the photo booth to take a was nightmare time. My new lights have a yellow tint...they aren't supposed to, but they sure do. So the photo looked awful. I then went to my outside photo booth and the photo was much better...I think shiny must be hard to photograph and this card is very shiny and shimmery....

Then I was reading Simply Southern Sandee's Blog and I saw the Our Daily Bread Challenge. I've never done this before, but I thought...hey, let's use this card for both...after all, there is a lot of shimmery on this card. Check out the Our Daily Bread Blog...
Here's what I used to make the card. I started with a light gray linen card stock. I then layered with a very shiny metallic silver cardstock. I then found a beautiful silver vellum from the Paper Company. I embossed it using a Cuttlebug emossing folder, and I also cut and embossed it using the Cuttlebug snowflake. The sentiment is a Stampin Up rubber stamp which I stamped and then used Silver Super Sparkle embossing powder by Imprintz. And finally....silver Dew Drop accents.
Now that my Mojo is up and running....I'd best put some of it behind cleaning up my mess. Have a great day!
