Sparkle and Snowflakes

Hi everyone.  Sassy Studio Designs is currently sponsoring Love to Create and the challenge is Sparkle and Snowflakes, two of my favorite things.  My inspiration for this card was my niece Grace.  Her birthday is coming up and she just loves Marilyn.  

I colored this amazing Marilyn Monroe image from SSD with Copics.  I fussy cut her out and popped her up with SU dimensionals.  I added glitter glue to her dress for sparkle.  I also added it to her jewelry.  I used glass effects on her jewelry and her shoes.

The snowflake paper is one of my favorites.  I have some left over so I have been using it on everything.  The  ribbon is generic.  The snowflakes were made using a Martha Stewart punch.  After punching, I used Versamark ink and embossed them with a sparkly white.  

I hope Grace likes it and I hope you do too.  Please check in again as I will be having some blog candy in a few weeks.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
