Sparkly Warm Winter

Hello, my friends! It seems like I haven't posted for ages! My last post was on Tuesday...a week ago. I haven't been involved in anything covert nor have I been hiding from the law. We simply decided to make good use of the few days of holidays we had. It's all very hazy now but I vaguely recall plenty of Port, dark chocolates, good friends, belly-clutching laughter and...buckets of rain!
Everything is back to normal now... and it's still chucking it down. No fireworks for us today. Wait a minute... what am I saying? We don't celebrate Guy Fawkes in Portugal and I dare say not many here have heard of this incendiary chap. However, in memory of  Mr F and his exploits I made this sparkly card for this week's Mojo challenge #266

The papers are from Papermania's "Mistletoe" 6x6 pad.... from 2 years ago, I think!
It's not easy to photograph sparkly and shiny stuff. I stamped that snowflake from Chocolate Baroque's Gift of Christmas set in Versacolor Silver and heat embossed it with Silver Holographic EP. Then I threw in blue and clear bling. And of course, that wasn't enough, so I accidentally spilt somw Crystal Stickles all over that snow flake. 
The card is almost flat. No foam tape.... I don't know what came over me. That snowflake medallion would have been perfect for some pop-dot action.  The sentiment is  from the same CB stap set, stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa. And being very clumsy today, I once again knocked over my Crystal Stickles...this time in ramdom dots all over the background paper!

And here is the inside, the sentiment is from CB's "Christmas Sentiment" set. 

That's it from me today. I'm going to catch up on some blog visitations and "commentations". Y'all stay warm and dry.

Before I go remember this star-fold card called "Scottie's Noel" that I made a few months back? Well, ever since it was featured in Papercraft Inspiration Issue #105, my email has been bursting with requests for a tutorial . I'm not used to receiving so many fact it has never happened before and an encore is not imminent. But if you're interested in seeing a how-to pictorial, head on over to "Scottie's Noel" about 10 minutes it should be up...make that 20...I'm having a slow day!

Thanks for stopping by and see you soon!
