MTTC 22 Jan 2021 Theme of Glitter Sparkle or Shine

 Welcome to Becca's Heart for Creativity blog! My artsy-crafty heart is excited to take time this week to de-stress a bit making my design team card inspiration for My Time To Craft! The theme is Glitter or  Sparkle/Shine for #449. I've included them both! Couldn't resist using some silver mirrored foil that is sandwiched between the snowflake print and the solid blue base. There is glitter on the huge blue snowflake, the small silver snowflakes, the lettering had silver glitter and I added red glitter paint pen so that "Howdy" would contrast.

Personal creative challenge for 2021 is to get inspired by one of my previous cards' designs from 2010 or 2011. This is my inspiration layout for today's wintery hello card:

The lettering for "Howdy" is placed like the plaid strip with the shells and seahorse stickers. The jumbo blue glitter snowflake and penguin are placed and even shaped vaguely like the starfish sentiment shape on the inspiration card.

card is being shared:

1. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog; "Always Anything Goes" theme;

2. Use Your Stuff Challenge Blog; "Out with the Old" theme; I used the dark blue with snowflakes patterned cardstock that was a leftover portion from last year's Christmas card-making; the glitter foam snowflake and penguin image from a gift tag are old items from my stash--at least 1.5 years or older
