Monday, September 7, 2009 you nearly beat me... oh man was this a tough one for me!  this card started out in so many different ways...and ended up like it is now through the process of sheer luck!  I had this adorable snowman all stamped out and ready to go...but then couldn't find the right background paper...and then when i did ...nothing was just an odd process to get to a finishing point!  So...long story short...I ended up creating my own background with a Glimmer Screen and some glimmer mist...unfortunately you can't see how well it does shimmer in this pic...but...I'm just very happy to get this card done!  Thank you Fresh Batch for forcing me to be creative!

Supplies: Cardstock: Bazzil Bling, CTMH, Georgia Pacific; Screen - Tattered Angels Winter Trees; Glimmer Mist - Glacier and Silver; Stamp - CTMH Christmas Melodies; Ink - CTMH Lilac Mist; Stickles - Star Dust; Ribbon - unknown
