MMSC#15 Sparkling Snowflake Medallion

Here is the sketch for this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #15. Come join the fun with Priscilla and her wonderful and talented Design Team members. There is a lot of exciting fun, prices, and yes, even cash give-a-ways. You don't want to miss it.
Here is my card for this weeks challenge. Let me tell you how hard it was to photograph this thing. I must have taken 30 pictures to finally decide on this one. It has so much glitz and bling; and it is hard to see really how shiny this is. I showed the Medallion to my son Wesley when I was working on it last night, and he thought it was one of my brooches. lol He said it looked like a piece of jewelry.....and yes, I would probably wear something like this. I love brooches that are 3 inches wide and more. The bigger the better. I like my brooch to enter the room before me!!! hahahaha

Back to the card. This medallion is a freebe at Fred, She Said. Isn't it just gorgeous. It's a digital design that you can color yourself, change the size, or anything your imagination can provide. I attached rhinestones to all the little circles on mine. I pop dotted in three layers and covered it with stickles. I sugared my blue card stock with silver glitter. The snowflakes are a punch from last years Martha Stewart line. I actually got it in the clearance section at Walmart after Christmas. Everything is mounted on silver card stock and I used eyelets in the center of the snowflakes and tied an iridescent bow.

I hope you enjoyed looking at this creation. It was great fun putting it together and wonderful to add another Christmas card to my stash. Have a wonderful Saturday. See you again soon.

Oh Carol, how beautiful. But I did LOL when you mentioned the brooch!!!! I can hear your son saying that too. Maybe you should make one and add several layers of EP to make it hard & shiney & turn it into a brooch. Love all the bling and shiney things on the card. TFS--Patty

Haha, love the brooch comment, Carol! :) This one is striking and I was thinking, I gotta get a stamp like that! It's a Digi, even harder to work with than a stamp... I'm just a bit old schooled. I just need more practice. Fabulous gems and details, xox ~Jeni
