Trees & Snowflakes all-a-glitter Unscripted Sketches

I've had a few days off from craft shows and I'm starting to get my Mojo back.  For several days I had a hard time creating cards because I was so tired.  But, having said that, I'm starting to get ready for another craft show on the weekend.
This card, which I should have titled Winter Wonderland is sparkling with glitter and was made using the sketch with Unscripted Sketches here


At first I didn't know what to do with the sketch, so I just looked at it for a couple of days.  Today I knew!
Technique:  The base of the card is Gumball Green, and it is layered with Very Vanilla card stock that has been double embossed using the Northern Flurry folder and Iridescent Ice embossing powder. Boy, does it glitter!  The picture doesn't do it justice.
The trees were hand cut from the Be of Good Cheer designer paper because the pattern has trees on it.  I punched a Champagne glitter star using the tiny star punch and adhered it to the top of the 2 trees.
I was a bit of a loss as to what to do with the circles on the sketch.  So, to continue my theme of glitter, I die cut 2 of the smallest snowflakes using the Snowflake flurry die and punched one using the Snowflake punch.  They were adhered to the card as shown and a pearl placed in the middle of each snowflake.

Stamp: Winter Memories
Ink: Gumball Green
Papers: Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP, Champagne glitter paper
Accessories: Northern Flurry folder, Snowflake flurry die, Snowflake punch, Modern Word label punch, Pearls, Iridescent Ice embossing powder, Small star punch
