Sparkling snowflakes on a mojo Monday!

Hi everyone! It's mojo Monday and the last sketch for September- wow! That means next Monday will be contest week- woohoo! Below is the sketch and my sample. I struggled a little with it and should have adjusted my measurements a little but all in all it came out ok. See what you think.

This card did not really take me that long to make once I figured out what I was doing LOL. I used some gorgeous papers that you can find at Paper Temptress from the metallic line- white diamonds and lapis metallic. Besides being my sample for the mojo sketch this week, it is also my submission for the color challenge at Christian Papercrafts this week which is to bling it on using metallics, bling etc. I stamped my snowflakes from Sweet N Sassy stamps with navy ink and accented them each with a rhinestone in the center. I then stamped my sentiment with navy and accented that with rhinestones also. The white panels were run through my cb folder.

stamps- Sweet N Sassy stamps snowflakes set
CS- Paper Temptress white diamonds, lapis metallic
accessories- rhinestones, snowflakes cb folder, navy organdy ribbon

Stop by the mojo Monday blog and check out the sketch details and the mojo makers rockin samples.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping in today!

PS. About 2 weeks ago my visitor counter seems to have lost like 40,000 hits. It still has not fixed itself. Has this happened to anyone else?? I had been planning on blog candy for 50,000 since it crossed that mark but now it's gone- weird.

YES! It happened about the time my counter host switched owners :(

Love your card and I love snowflakes! The navy just sets it off perfectly. Beautiful!
I really like the design, too.

This is lovely with all the sparkle! You can go in and reset your counter to the approx # if you wish. That happened to me once so I try to keep a mental count and did have to reset mine.

Beautiful card! I love all of the shimmer in your cards! I hope you are doing well!
I use typepad, so I don't have a blog hit counter on my blog (only behind the scenes). But I did just realize that I hadn't been getting my email updates for your blog for weeks now! Weird!
