Recipe @ Christmas Card Challenges

Mornings Beautiful People!
It is time for a new challenge at

And this week’s theme is....
A Recipe! 
Are you ready to cook ?  You will need -
4 Layers
3 Ribbons
2 Designer Papers 
1 Butterfly  

Ohhhh A butterfly!  for Christmas!!!
Well ...  It just so happens,
 I have the perfect card in my head for this that I have been itching to make!!!!
Forgive my camera!  This card is all pink and white with loads of sparkle and my camera and the card just did not want to play nice together, regardless of how, when, where or what time of day I tried to shoot it :$  

I {love} how magical the snowflake turned out! 

I have been getting inky with those stamps of mine again :$  The snowflake I have stamped with 3d fabric paint, sprinkled with Stampin Up' dazzling diamonds and popped on a pink jewel for the center.  All around the edges of each of the papers is some more luscious magical snow! With some more on the butterflies and some dollops here and there and also on the die cut snowflakes!  This really well and truly exceeded what I had imagined in my head!

The Christmas Card Challenge girls  
have all been cooking up a storm this week too! 
So please call past the Christmas Card Challenges Blog,

Those snowy edges are AMAZING. I can well believe this turned out even better than your vision for it -- isn't it wonderful when that happens?
