Dazzling Snowflakes for PP176

Hello, my poor, long neglected blog.  You poor baby.  How have you been? I've been busy and I promise I hadn't forgotten you.  I did feel quite guilty about not visiting more frequently, but just couldn't seem to find the time.  A new year will be here soon, so, hopefully, time for more stamping. 

I finally sat down to stamp and decided to play along with The Paper Players because I just couldn't resist the white on white challenge! :o)

You were to use white on white and allowed only a metallic or neutral for the sentiment.  Got it.  I could do this.

So, I got out my VersaMark and my heat and stick powder and Dazzling Diamonds and inked up my newest stamp set, "Festive Flurry".  I'm a sucker for snowflake stamps and this one was no exception.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to photograph Dazzling Diamonds glitter?!? I tried, I really did. 
I even took a photo on an angle.  You can see the shimmer and shine here.

And, a close-up, because, well, it just seemed like the thing to do. 

Drat it all, this is a really pretty card IRL.  :sigh:  I wish you could see it...

On the inside, I used the ginormous snowflake inked with my VersaMark "Dazzle" and stamped the stamped the sentiment over it using silver Encore. 

You can sort of see the snowflake, can't you?  :sigh:  Maybe this is why I've neglected you--I can't seem to get decent photos...

At any rate, it's sparkly and Christmasy and delightful and sure to bring a smile to Lil's teacher's face. :o)
