The Shimmerz-iest Snowmen in all of Snow-ville!

When I saw these new Blingz (do you not looove that name?) I was so excited! Do you know how hard it is to find a "good gold" paint or otherwise? Let me just tell you, as a person who is a magpie, it is hard to find.

But this Gold Glimmer Blingz hits a HOME RUN!

I used both Gold Glimmer and the new December sky Blingz as well as Burgundy, Celery, Marigold and Angel wings Shimmerz.

I used sort of a mix of traditional and non-traditional wintery colors to create my card. I was looking through my stacks of paper and ran across this lovely Crate Paper pattern, and I thought the little flowers would be fun to use on a wintery card. :)

And when I was in Michael's today, I came across this beautiful ribbon that was sort of glittery and beautiful, but my husband was with me and he pretty much vetoed me buying another roll of ribbon (I may have a bit of a problem...LOL!) So I decided to try my had at making a shimmery ribbon so I took a length of Soft Sky (SU!, ret.) ribbon and brushed some December Sky Blingz over it. Instant results!

I included some up-close shots so you can see the details. If you have any questions, just ask me...I'm happy to help! :)

Enjoy and have a VERY Shimmerz-ey day!
