Grainy Pic!

Another bad card to photograph! Looks really grainy to me but after 20 minutes of picture taking I finally gave up and you'll just have to believe me when I tell you that in real life it's actually quite a nice card!
I made a conscious decision this year not to make cards with lots of layers that were expensive to post or even worse were well squashed and damaged when they arrived at their destination.

I popped up the snowflake edges to take the pic but it does actually lie reasonably flat -must have been OK cos it's now arrived and it's recipient said it was lovely....

Just basic white card with a piece of left over pale blue/white polka dot cardstock - scalloped edged because the left over wasn't straight and I had to disguise it to use it up!
The snowflake cut from an odd bit of white card, glittered and a centre blingy.
The PB sentiment stamped and hear embossed in white onto another teeny scrap of blue/white striped paper (the 'sister' to the polka dot one!).
 Will be paying a visit to week 155 at Pixie's Playground with my odd bits card this week too!
