Blinging It Up for Atlantic Coast Hearts

I have been playing with snowflakes a lot lately and this Atlantic Hearts Sketch screams for them, particularly since I wanted to participate in the Color My Heart dare to use Twilight and Crystal Blue.

And I would have used snowflakes if I didn't just get a package of Base and Bling Floral Accents that I couldn't wait to play with.  To complement the Pearl Flourish, I popped out the sparkle centers and replaced them with Pearl Opaques.  I made up for removing the sparkles by adding Silver Shimmer Trim and Silver Glitter Paper.  Here is the inside:

Thank you for stopping by!  Until next time, Hansi

Materials used, all from Close to My Heart unless otherwise noted:
Paper:  Twilight, Crystal Blue and White Daisy cardstock, Silver Glitter Paper
Ink:  Twilight, Crystal Blue
Stamps:  Fabulous You, Card Chatter - Birthday
Embellishments:  Base and Bling Floral Accents, Pearl Flourish, Silver Shimmer Trim

  4. Oh, those swirls! I've just been reading a book on mountaineering, and the word "spindrift" kept coming up--your card captures that movement so well. Gorgeous colour choices, too, esp the touch of silver to go with the bling. Thanks for sharing with AHSC--always a treat!
