German Phrase of the Day: Du hast ein schoenes Laecheln. = You have a nice smile. Laecheln is pronounced LAYKH-ehln. For some reason, this is a very hard word for me to remember. Perhaps now I finally will after having typed it! ;-)
And hopefully this card will make you all smile. It was for Shannan Steuben's Bella challenge to use EVERYTHING on your card and go overboard - glitter, ribbon, embossing, embellishments...anything and everything!
Bella herself is much as yesterdays, except I gave her pink tights today to keep her a little warmer. I also used Bashful Blue and Night of Navy to match the cardstock. Her corners are clipped and she's mounted on some Night of Navy CS, then I put some rhinestone stickers in the corners.
The card base is Stamper's Select White from PaperTrey Ink. I love that this cardstock has some good weight to it, so it doesn't feel flimsy! Then, I layer of Night of Navy, and then a layer of Bashful Blue which was cuddled with the snowflake folder, swiped with White Craft ink, and embossed with iridescent ice EP. That layer just sparkles like mad!
I used Navy grosgrain, white organdy, and some silver cord for ribbon around the middle, and then I punched the Got Snow? greeting using the word window punch (it just barely fit!) and used rhinestones for the "o"'s.
The sparkle does send her a little over the top...but I like it!!
