Lawn Fawn Let it Snow

I hope you like this sparkly winter card as much as I do!  I am still struggling with the fact winter is here because I am sitting here with my window open - it is snowing right now and I still have my window open!  I love the Colorado weather!  Since it is snowing, I thought I'd share this card with you:

What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base 
Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate Winter Stamps, #LF1769
Lawn Fawn Simply Celebrate Winter Dies, #LF1770
Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Christmas Petite Paper Pack {retired but available}
Watercolor Paper {I use this}
Zig Clean Color Brush Markers
Gina K Amalgam Ink Pad in Obsidian Ink
Stickles in Star Dust
Spellbinders Curved Rectangle Dies, #S5-006 
{retired but available}
DCWV Glitter Metallic Mat Stack 6" x 6" 
Maroon Pearl Paper from stash

I had stamped, colored, cut, and put the glitter glue on the row of houses a while ago. If you are a regular reader you know I like to have extras of any stamps I color and cut, and this was a left over from a batch I made with the Lawn Fawn stamps.  Once the glitter glue dried, I set about deciding on a background, and this time I chose a snowy gray background so as to not distract from the houses.  Again, when deciding the sentiment I didn't want to distract from the houses but at the same time I wanted it to stand out enough that it would be read.  This maroon pearl paper is actually from an envelope I had gotten in a kit about a million years ago.  I used the dies to cut out the frame from the white glitter paper and adhered it all to the white card base.  I think this card looks a lot more complicated than it was to make!
