Snowflakes and {Shattered} Glass Technique

Good morning!! Today's post is my entry for the Viva La Verve's November sketch #2. After last week's challenge (that almost killed me!) this week's challenge was like a day at the spa!! LOL We had to use the cracked glass technique. I have only done this technique a couple of times years ago at a Stamper's looks more like shattered glass!! The glue dot on the snowflake is holding the shards together!! I've included a photo before I put on the snowflake to show the effect. My mojo with my new stamps is back thanks to this GORGOUS card by Amber during the last Verve release as well as this STUNNING card by Julee :) I love the snowflakes on kraft....uber yummy!! I wish you all a blessed Sunday :) Smiles from B.C.

What's in it?
Stamps: Verve Christmas in the Air, Frosty Flakes
Paper: SU kraft; PTI cream, sweet blush, hibiscus burst
Ink: SU choc chip, close to cocoa; PTI vintage cream pigment ink
Accessories: cuttlebug ef; oval nestabilities; Fiskars apron punch; SU felt snowflake; Heidi Swapp snowflake; stitching; $ store butterfly; UTEE

Very pretty card! Love the pink butterfly on the snowflake. It goes so well with the sentiment!

This is beautiful. The cracked glassworks perfect with this card. It reminds me of the looking out my window on a really cold snowy morning and having frost on my old windows. I also like the little pink butterfly on top of the snowflake. It's a very subtle touch.

This is a stunner,! I wouldn't have known that your Mojo's ever gone by your beauties each day, but you're really on a roll with gorgeous cards!

Oh so pretty! I love that splash of pink with the kraft, it looks gorgeous! I've not tried the cracked glass technique but it looks fabulous here and no-one else knows it's a glue dot holding it together ;D
I'm very excited about the PTI release! We have to get up at the crack of dawn to order from this side of the pond but it's totally worth it!

You beat me to using a snowflake again...only teasing LOL! Great use of the cracked glass technique and your focal snowflake is lovely. You have definitely recovered from last week's sketch - not that I think you needed to as it was a great card! We are our own worst critics. Slash of pink is perfect! Great card.

Oh WOW! I LOVE IT! The cracked glass is so neat and of course I LOVE the colors! :)

Just fabulous! Love the color combo and your cracked glass looks fantastic!

great card Maureen, shattered or cracked I love it. Like Laurel Lee it remeinds me of the pararies where I would have to put my finger on the glass till it melted a spot so I could see out, and in so doing I would gaize at the snowflakes formations.Elaine
