Retro Duos

I made a card for RetroSketches and DynamicDuos. I really loved the inspiration this week! Here is my card:
I had fun with this one. I mixed some of my white glitter with my clear embossing powder, not sure what it would do. Then I embossed some snowflakes, each one unique, with the sparkly embossing powder. I didn't think it showed up at first, but it really sparkles in the sunlight. I took this picture in direct sunlight so you could see the snowflakes when you click on the picture. I used my new embossing pen for the first time on the snowman's hat, thinking that it would set clear. But it stayed blue. Luckily it matched, so I didn't make a do-over, but it's not what I intended. Bob Ross would call it a happy accident. I also embossed the sentiment with the sparkly powder.

Cardstock: Black, White Daisy, Twilight
Stamps: Very Merry Christmas, Pair-a-Phrase
