CAS-ual Fridays Stamps New Release (Day 2)


Today is day 2 of the CAS-ual Fridays Stamp New Release. The featured stamp set is called "Snowflake Splendor"

 I decided to let the snowflake tree speak for itself and chose to stamp the image in Neon Inks.  
JOY
 I added three small strips of glitter paper and sequins to complete the design.
Speaking of JOY, my kids really know how to take simple and mundane things and make them JOYFUL . During the cruise, our cabin steward always made us the most immaculate beds with amazing towel folding. These cute animals were always the highlights...before you know it, the kids turn them into part of the studio photo sessions...
Seeing them smile gives me JOY!

I hope that you check out the Snowflake Splendor created by my design team mates (see here)! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Ooooh, goody, another reason to use neon inks (secretly, my favorite). The card is lovely...and the strips of glitter paper are a perfect ground. Very clever. You must have the best kids in the world. My girls wouldn't be caught dead traveling with me but my grandkids would love it.
