Day 1 Christmas in July - Catch the bug

Saturday July 15, 2017
Its day 1 of Christmas in July at Catch the bug..
It's a week long fun filled challenges. There's prizes to be won.. Who doesn't love free images??
Today to start our challenge.. The theme is make your card
Sparkle or Shine or both..

I used the image Snowbirds . I first used a dark blue card stock and Stampin Up snowflake stamps. I heat embossed in white..  I then took my Wink of Stella glitter pen and went all over the dark blue to give it sparkle.. The white embossing powder gives it shine.. I then colored the image with copics. I added glitter to the snow and to the snow flakes falling behind the image. I then added glitter to different parts of the snowflakes on the dark blue. I stamped the Hero Arts sentiment and added glitter to the sentiment snowflake. I used a My Favorite Things oval die.
This is a close up of my card.. on the right side you can see the Wink of Stella on the dark blue. The glitter on the snow and few places on the snow flakes.  Plus the shinny white embossing..
