Distress Christmas Card

Once again my photography skills are showing how bad I really am on 'automatic'!!
This card came to me while playing with Distress Inks and  Ranger Perfect Pearls.  This card stock really started out as plain white!  Kind of looks like I was taking out my agressions on the paper!   
The background stamp is stamped in Frayed Burlap along with the Flourish.  Perfect Pearls Bronze was dusted onto the Flourish and the excess dusted off.   Next was that awesome sentiment which was stamped with Gold Brilliance and embossed with gold embossing powder.
The snow flakes were stamped with Frayed Burlap and dusted with Gold Perfect Pearls. 
I added more light to this photo so that the perfect pearls would stand out a bit more for you to see.  The card looks like #*%! in the photo but, IRL... It's not too shabby.  Victoria said it looks like store bought and classy... I love Victoria  :o) j/k
The Recipe:
Background - Penny Black Letter Background
Flourish - Stampendous! Jumbo Dahlia set  (Love this set!!)
Sentiment - Inkadinkado
Snowflakes - Penny Black
Distress - Fired Brick, Frayed Burlap, Walnut
Memento - Rhubarb
Perfect Pearls
Bling - Dollarama
Thanks for looking!
That's about it other than adding a wee bit of bling!
