Well peeps - the blogger didn't schedule me post AGAIN! This was supposed to post at 8.30am - it's a good job I'm up early!!!

Graham had a lot of trouble getting the white to look white, especially because I had used white pearlescent card. He said he tried loads of times to sort it and also to get the glitter to sparkle (it does sparkle if you get close enough to it!!!). I do understand, and know that he isn't the only one to have problems. To see the glitter, it's best to open this in a new tab and then do a close up - then it sparkles and twinkles!!! This is an aperture card so he also took a picture from an angle to show the inside.
I found the sentiment on a site where there were free verses etc and thought it was just the one I wanted for this card. I was going to make a card using a stamp of a Christmas village but I've put it somewhere safe!!!! I hadn't a clue what colour to use with the black and white until I decided to use an ivy corner - light bulb moment - use green!!! Here are the ingredients -
7" x 7" white card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Sentiment - T'internet Free Verses site
White pearly card - Crafters Companion
Green card - 12" x 12" AC Textured Cardstock
Adorning Squares die - Spellbinders
