Unity bachelor #2

I've been playing along with Unity's Bachelor contest - each week there's a new challenge being posted on Splitcoast each Thursday for the next few weeks. This week's challenge called for using a piece of patterned paper, lots of glitter or sparkle, two buttons, and of course, Unity stamps. I need to start building up my stash of Christmas cards so I pulled out this Dasher paper from Basic Grey, dug up some Unity holiday stamps, and got to work. I stamped the snowflake pattern on the long narrow strip, then covered the entire panel in versamark and embossed with iridescent ice for a super sparkly effect. I also added some sparkle with a Spica glitter pen to the ornament image. One holiday card down, about 50 more to go!
Supplies:
Stamps: Unity
Ink: soft sky, Memento rich cocoa
Paper: artichoke, soft sky, neenah white, Basic Grey dasher
Accessories: nestabilities, spica glitter pen, corner rounder, buttons, ribbon, embossing powder
