Teal and Snowflakes

Hello, everyone!  I hope you're all enjoying your week.  It was my first week back at work (school) after the nice long holiday.  I wanted to make a card for a couple of challenges.  I hope you've all had time to do some crafting as well.
I created my card using a teal patterned paper and then made "icicles" all around the outer edges of my card.  I put a doily (cut in half) and then added a seam binding bow and some felt snowflakes. The sentiment is a rub-on from Melissa Frances.  They're my favorite rub-ons and they're getting very difficult to find.
I also wanted to take a close-up photo to show my "icicles" that I made on the edges of the card using Elmer's glue and ultra-fine glitter.  I thought it turned out cute.
I'm entering these challenges today:
Classy Cards 'N Such Challenge Blog - Challenge #66 - Teal Snowflakes - I didn't actually have any teal snowflakes, so I used teal patterned paper, and added snowflakes.  The CCNS products I used are white seam binding, Scor-Tape and ultra-fine diamond glitter.
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says Something New - I used my new ultra-fine glitter I just got for Christmas

Word Art Wednesdays - Challenge #165 - Anything Goes

Sketch Saturday Challenge Blog - Challenge #343 - Sketch - I really liked this sketch, and had a lot of fun designing my card around it.
Thanks for visiting me!
