The Paper Players, PP74

You'll never believe what I am about to say, this is day off #4 of the Thanksgiving Holiday and I'm a little bored. My house is spotless, left-overs are all used up, my stamp room is organized.....I'm just so used to being on the go all the time! What a perfect time to create card #2 for today. The Paper Players has a "Lesley Sketch" today:

You know those new "Mica Flakes"? Well....I've used them in approximately 5-6 cards so far and the jar has not budged at all. It's amazing how much is in there! I decided to use them in my card again today:

All I do to get them to stick is run a thin line of Tombow Mono-Adhesive around what I want them to adorn, spinkle, press down with my fingertips, shake off the excess and it's all completed. So easy!

And what about the Red Glimmer Paper? Do you like my snowflakes? Even though red is not a traditional snowflake color, it works for this card. I also added a Rhinestone Jewel in the center of each snowflake:

Okay, enough rambling for today. I so appreciate that The Paper Players had a challenge for me to participate in this morning. Make sure you scroll down to view my other post for today. You won't be disappointed....promise!
