Fair Isle and Bling

 
It was time that I inked up my Nordic Winter stamps with something other than red, so I decided to follow this week's Waltzing Mouse Sketch and make an icy blue card for it.  The vertical stripes are some paper I won from Paper Temptress, a lovely satiny paper.  I just meant to put the larger bling in the corners and maybe a scattering on the snowflakes, but the card told me it needed more and I used up my small bling:).  There's a lot of sparkle in real life...
My card is for:
Waltzing Mouse - sketch
Shopping our Stash - glitters, sparkles or shines
Stamptacular Sunday - texture (twine, gems)
Use it Tuesday - all about winter (used up gems)
Tuesday Throwdown - baby it's cold outside
Sweet Stamps - hearts (middle border)
I Brake for Stamps - clean & simple
Secret Crafter - anything goes with blue
Simon Says - spots and/or stripes this one is stripes:)
