A little sparkle and shine!

Have you ever made a card and it is so much prettier IRL than your photo? That is certainly true of this card. I wanted to make this a night time scene. This is something I still need to work on. The snow falling is puffy paint and IRL it really does pop right off the card. I also added it to the snow on the ground. I added some 'fine' glitter to the fur on the coat and Stickles to the stars! The sentiment is from SU. My paper has all kinds of sparkle and shine, so I elected to use black to tone it down a bit. I was in doubt about the black, but I am happy with the results. I hope your week has started off well and you day is filled with blessings!
My Song: Amy Grant 'My Father's Eyes'
I may not be every mother's dream for her little girl.
And my face may not grace the mind of everyone in the world.
But that's all right as long as I can have one wish I pray.
When people look inside my life, I want to hear them say.
She's got her Father's eyes, her Father's eyes
Eyes that find the good in things, When good is not around.
Eyes that find the source of help, When help just can't be found.
Eyes full of compassion, seeing every pain.
Knowin' what you're going through, and feeling it the same.
Just like my Father's eyes, my Father's eyes, my Father's eyes
Just like my Father's eyes

I can really see the glitter and the dimension with the snow, I think it is lovely. And I love using black for matting, I think it just makes everything pop. Gorgeous card!

Your cards are always a ray of sunshine with the sparkle & shine you add to them. I agree the black is the perfect touch to make it "pop" ... Have a great day Patty...
