Happy Sunday

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend..... at least it is dry again which makes us feel better, the forecast is for cold and wet, we shall see lol,....I have had such a frustrating time trying to make this card, I knew what I wanted to do but everything was against me, don't you just hate those days! I cut my card with grand nesties for the shape, trouble was it did not cut through both pieces, so I had to mess about and finish with scissors. Then because the card was not true, the snowflake mat was out of flunter and also the bottom glitter mat!! Then came the new spellbinder flourishes I bought 2 weeks ago at the craft show, they only half cut despite going through the big shot 6 times, so had to resort to the scissors again. I wasted so much time with it all, I could not find the glitter card either as I had to re-organize when my shelf fell down.... Anyway, finally finished and this is for my 18year old Granddaughter and I know she will love the glitter and pearls lol
