Silver holiday highlights

Hello and hope you are having a blessed Sunday!
I am back with my latest card for Sentimental Sundays.  This week's theme is "Inspired by a Song."  I have the Irving Berlin song, "Happy Holidays" stuck in my head and find myself singing it as I work around the house, run errands, and even in the shower.  Anyone else sing in the shower? Another confession from me.  ;-)
Anyhow, I printed the Raindrop Echo  sentiment which was surrounded by a frame and cut it out.  You can find the sentiment here.   Next I matted a black piece of cardstock behind it and then add some glitter for sparkle. 

I stamped the background with a grey snowflake and then added Stickles in the centers which you can't see too well here.  I cut a piece of my flocked  wrapping paper and tried twine around it with a single bell.  Which leads up to the large felt piece I hand cut and stitched to resemble a snowflake.  I added pearls and buttons for accents. I love the elegance of this card with a touch of whimsy.  It was fun to create!
