  6. Beautiful sparkly card, I love the snowflake shape. Thank you for joining the DL.ART Thankful Thursday Anything Goes January Linky Challenge

  7. I love that you used patterned paper behind the image! Thanks for the tip. Last night I finally made my first cuts with my Cricut and used CTMH's glitter paper. I went one setting higher than cardstock and found I had to use an exacto knife to cut some of the edges. All in all though I loved the results and can't wait to play more! Thanks for entering my CAS challenge this week - I only have 4 players so I don't want to do a Top 3 but you're entered to win the final prize :)
