Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #154

Cas Colours & Sketches Challenge #154

For my card I've used sketch #128, but I've rotated it for the sentiment.

To make the windows I've used the Simon Says Stamp tri square die.
For the sentiment i've also used a Simon Says stamp: presents and ornaments set.
I've diecut 3 snowflakes from white glitter paper.

For the background I've stuck a strip of double sided adhesive from Elizabeth crafts on the cardbase and poured 5 different colours of glitter, also different textures and sizes of glitter.
I tried to make an ombre effect.
I rubbed all the glitter into the sticky tape  with my bone folder and then mounted the panel with foamtape.

then attached the snowflakes with some taperunner and or a gluedot.

just diecutting 3 glittered papers might have been less messy, but also much less  fun! haha, you should see the state of my room, better yet...don't! Also I wanted the ombre effect.
