Magical and a Frozen Dress

I was about to go to bed and had an idea so went with it. Another of these challenges that is about to end and I had been tiding and sorting my dies. I have a three window die that I hate to say I have had for some time and this is the first card using it.

I cut out the three windows then coloured a piece of white card stock with Mermaid Distress Ink, darker at the bottom and fading out at the top. Attached to the back of the window.

Die cut some snowflakes from a fine glitter paper and attached. Kept some of the dots from the glitter cut snowflakes and added here and there along with the shimmery sequins.

Finished off with a new die 'Magical' that I die cut in blue then coloured with my shimmer Gel pen that is also blue. Lost the dot, drew a dot, it doesn't work at all but as its time to get this posted or miss the challenge it will have to do till tomorrow and I can die cut another and replace.

The card looks prettier IRL than in the photo. Looks a bit flat here, ahh well I think sometimes our ideas are prettier than reality. Edit: I think I picked up the problem, the blending isn't showing up as heavy getting lighter in the photo as well as it does here. There isn't enough contrast.

I would like to add to:

New snowflake die and three window die is new in use.

To finish off here is a photo of my granddaughter in her new 'Frozen dress' that her mum (my daughter-in-law) made for her. She looks so pretty and I am so proud of Mel as she has only been sewing for a couple of months now and this is her first dress.

Okay thats for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

Your granddaughter is so cute. Your DIL (Mel?) has done an amazing job of the dress for a beginner.

Oh, I love how you used the tri-square dies, Aileen! I think you chose the best sentiment for those stunning, sparkly snowflakes, too! Another beautiful card!
