"Winter Scenes"



Hello and welcome to day 1 of the blog hop for Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co!! Today's feature is "Big City". 

I knew right off that I wanted to make this a "New Year" card and add twine pom poms.  I first saw the pom poms used on a card in a Paper Crafts magazine this spring.


I heat embossed the buildings with silver EP.  The twine is actually a very inexpensive "friendship" twine I found at Walmart.  I spritzed the card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spray (difficult to see from this angle)   I added  gems to the card above but the card below does not have gems.  My daughter likes it better without the bling.... I will let you be the judge!


Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure to visit the rest of the designers for some fabulous inspiration, leave some love and you just might win today's stamp set!
