Avery Elle & Add a Little Dazzle week

Hi there!! Happy Monday!!

It's Add A Little Dazzle and Avery Elle week!  This week the Avery Elle design team is playing with some amazing metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle.  These sheets work great with our Elle-ments dies!  After visiting here, be sure to check out the Add A Little Dazzle blog for even more inspiration!  Be sure to comment on our company and designer blogs throughout to week to be entered to win one of two prizes - a $30 Avery Elle Gift Certificate or a prize from Add A Little Dazzle!  Winners will be announced on Monday, October 6th.

I made this card combining products from both companies, for the background I used a stencil that I created with my Silhouette Cameo with embossing paste on watercolor paper and added a little watercolor in blues and aqua tones.
The rest of the card is super easy, I die cut and mount everything, heat embossing the sentiment from Joy to the World on a metal banner.

Here's a little close up so you can see the beautiful shine of these metal sheets! I used two different colors: White for the snowflake and red for the sentiment banner and little embellishments.
