Lavinia Snowflake Ornament

This card is just gorgeous ---and does not photograph well at all!  The picture catches NONE of the sparkle that richly finishes this card.
I used the Memory Box Lavinia Snowflake Ornament die as an embosser, where I had heatset sparkling clear embossing powder into the LINES of the embossing.  The ornament itself is worked with Metallic Colorburst (turquoise) over texture created by very carefully monitoring where some sparkle EP got heatset.  The embossed snowflakes are worked with Wink of Stella, 3d crystal Glaze, white Posco Pen, Glitter Gel pens and rhinestones. Peace is from the  Spellbinders dieset and is cut with glitter washi paper. Splatter is with the metallic turquoise, and accented with white gel pen, Nuvo dots, and tiny rhinestones (silver and Turquoise.)  The basic embossing a die technique was taught by Jennifer McGuirk in her video "Embossed Impressions."  Next time I try this technique it will be with gold EP as she demonstrated the sparkle clear EP does not provide enough line definition.  Ribbon is 1/8 inch Tempo silver and white ribbon.
