I started this card by creating a background with Distress Oxide ins, layering colors and spritzing with water. Once I was satisfied, I applied the sparkly Snowflake Paste through a stencil so that the stars covered the background. The Snowflake Paste is really effective in creating an interesting background with a subtle sparkle. You can get an idea of the effect the close-up featured in the photo below.
I then added the die-cuts and sequins, layering the papers to create the card using inspiration from the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches. Thanks for stopping by.

Beautiful card. Your sponged background is gorgeous, made even more so with that stunning texture past. Love the sparkle and the added snowflake is just the perfect final touch.
