Let's Get Messy - Take 16

It's the 12th of November, time to get messy. (insert deer-in-the-headlight look) As you likely recall from previous 12ths, I am not one who likes messes. Not one bit. BUT a challenge is only a challenge if it stretches you, and I'm up for the Hot Mess Success Challenge. 

Barb, Carol, Darlene, Kelly, Terry and I create cards for the Hot Mess Success challenge each month and share them on the 12th. 

It's Anything Goes - as long as there is something messy involved. The pictures really don't show my messy element very well. I used a gilding polish and a stencil to create snow in the background and I also put the same gilding polish on the edge of my two panels of white snow banks.

Oh... and I also put the same gilding polish all over my hands and my work surface. Sheesh! I took the "messy" instructions to the extreme this month, it seems.

This closeup shows the snow a little better...

Be sure to check out the other Hot Mess gals blogs, too, to see their cards (you'll be WOW'd!)...

Beautiful card. Love the way the snow looks on here. I must agree, I too create messes whether there is a challenge or not. LOL! TFS!

This card is amazing Jeanette. I love the snow and will have to check out how to do it.(And what to get to recreate it). Well done my "neat" friend

This is too cute. This is one of my most favorite snowmen stamps--and the background is great!
