Sensational Silver

 So how do you feel about Silver?  You know, I used to be strickly a "Gold" girl and I turned my nose up at Silver.  But, as of late I am coming around about Silver.  If you want a nice icy cold crisp feel-then silver is color.  Gold give a warm rich regal feel pair with colors of your choice.
 For this card I used just white and silver.   The silver paper is Recollection and you can get it at Michael's.  The Merry Christmas is an ornament I picked up at the Dollar Tree in a package of 6 for a dollar.  They had Gold too!!!  You may just see a card in  I made the snowflake Stick pins by removing the head from the pins I have and apply two glittered snowflakes with the pin sandwiched in the middle.  They were glittered with Martha Stewart glitter and a Recollection rhinestone applied in the center.
 I used a bunch of Spellbinders die and also the Memory Box Frostyville Snow Border which you can see peeking out from under those sugared Martha Stewart Snowflakes.  There is also so very cool silver rhinestone mesh at the border at the bottom.  I got that at the CKC in Jacksonville in September.  That stuff is so pretty.
 Thank you so much for stopping by today and letting me share my Christmas Creation with you.  See you real soon,
