This card was created for the Die Cut Dreams challenge.  This challenge is #57 Acetate. 

I had already made this card to take with me when I went to visit the girls at Creativity! TV.  They liked it that much that I was filmed holding my design.  I was wondering what to do with this card when I brought it home because I had not entered it for any challenges.  This weeks challenge gave me a perfect excuse to put it on my blog.

To create this card I used Stamps: Daisy and Dandelion Penelope and Percy clear stamps.  Card stock: White glittered.  Papermania Mini aperture box card kit.  Papers: DP Daisy and Dandelion Penelope and Percy paper pack.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black, Bahama Blue, Danube Blue.  Colourings: Copic markers Letter Box R22/R29.  Beaks Y21/YR12.  Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils.  Sakura gel pens Souffle 950, Glaze 849.  Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circles Large.  Embellishments: Art Deco Glamour Dust Crystal.  Flower soft polar white.

Hints and Tips
When cutting the frame out for the front of the box use the cut out for the inside of the box.  I used Flower Soft Polar white inside the box as it is thicker than glitter and makes a lovely snow fall effect when you shake the box.
