I decided to use this cute 'let it snow' image and my song inspiration is 'Let it Snow' which is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Sleigh Bells is my very favorite song so I decided to go ahead and make a second card (posted below).
To make my 'let it snow' card I stamped my image and colored it using my SU markers. My background was dry embossed and then I lightly rubbed my versamark ink pad over the raised areas and I sprinkled some iridescent ice embossing powder and heat embossed it. It's hard to see in my photos, but it's really sparkly in person. I also added some more glitter under my let it snow image. I love glitter, can ya tell?!!

I added some white dots along my real red layer using my white gel pen and just above my sentiment I added two dry embossed lines just to sort of break up the area of my stamped image and my sentiment.

Basically my card is a mixture of white layers and dry embossed white layers. I love all white cards so this went together pretty quickly for me. I used the petals-a-plenty and perfect polka dots embossing folders. Just below my sentiment I added two rows of dry embossing.
For my embellishments I used some retired SU organdy ribbon and silver cording. I also decided to add some dazzling diamonds in the center of the flowers on my embossed background. It's hard to see in my photo, but it's there. I think I've convinced myself that I will be covered with glitter all day long tomorrow...LOL
