Some of My Best Friends are Flakes

I just love this sentiment. It makes me giggle a little everytime I read it. The sentiment and image are from the Flaky Friends stamp set by Stampin' Up!. This is a card I made for this weeks' Christmas in September Challenge over at Creative Inspirations.

I decided to use up some of the Basic Grey Christmas paper I bought last year and hadn't even opened. I also tried using Fantasy Film for the first time. I know if you heat it you create a bond between layers but I decided to go easy the first time. I just ran it through my Big Shot with the new Spellbinders Snowflake die then separated the layers to add some dimension. I also added some dimension with liquid applique (do I ever love that stuff) covered in glitter.

Copics used
Shading - C1, C00, BG000
Clothing: BG01, BG000, BG0000, R08, R05,
RV34, RV32, C7, C5, C3, Y08, Y04
