Special Sparkling Snowflake ~ HSS305, IB52

Hello stampers and Happy New Year!  I hope you entered 2019 happy, healthy, and safe!
Today's card is for Hand Stamped Sentiments challenge #305.  It's our January sketch.  Along with our sketch, I used the photo from Inspired By #52 Let It Snow.  
With Christmas being over I turned to more of a wintery forest type feel.  I stamped the branch from Peaceful Noel around a Crumb Cake stiched shape circle with Gray Granite ink.  I also stamped the cluster of snowflakes from Snow is Glistening around the circle and embossed them with white EP.  I cut out a white snowflake from the Snowfall Thinlits dies and added it to the center of the circle, embellishing it with a clear faceted gem.  For the white panel, I stamped the tree image from Snow is glistening all over, making it look like the panel was stamped with a background stamp.  I added a sentiment from Snow is Glistening that I thought could be a birthday greeting.  I ran the whole white panel through the big shot with my Subtle TIEF.  I embossed the Gray Granite background piece with my Woodland EF and sponged it with Gray Granite ink.  I also sponged the Crumb Cake card base, the white snowflake panel and the Crumb Cake circle.  I added a bit of Silver Thread to the back of the Crumb Cake circle as well.  After adhering the whole thing together, I spritzed it with Champagne Shimmer mist spray. I painted on extra sparkle to the main snowflake with my Wink Of Stella pen.  The shimmer of it all is amazing in real life!  

I stamped the inside with a partial sentiment from Snow is Glistening and then added a Happy Birthday from Beautiful Bouquet.

I hope you'll be able to join us for the January sketch challenge at HSS!
Thanks for taking peek!
