Have a Dazzling Thanksgiving!

Hi Everyone!

Hoping everyone has a Happy Happy Thanksgiving!  If you are not spending all of your free time shopping for bargains, why not join us at Add a Little Dazzle for this week's newest challenge?  The Design Team is embossing this week, using stencils.

Here is your inspiration photo~

I used a piece of Midnight Blue (love that color!) Add a Little Dazzle Craft Metal, clear embossing paste, Martha Stewart Fine Glitter and my Add a Little Dazzle Mosaic Swirls Background Stainless Steel Stencil.  I have to say, this is my only stainless stencil and WOW, what a difference from plastic stencils.  It is super sturdy- no shifting of the stencil or anything!
So, first I embossed the metal, using the stencil and suede and paper stump from The Basic Embossing Tool Kit.  Once I had dry embossed the entire image, I embossed again, this time using clear embossing paste.  I added a good amount of glitter to the entire embossed area, shook off the loose glitter and let the whole thing dry.
My snowy landscape was cut freehand and glittered with Stampendous' glitter.  The deer is cut using the Top Dog Dies Darling Deer Die.
Admittedly, I had different plans for this stencil in the beginning.  But, once I got started, what I saw with this stencil and Midnight Blue Metal was a night sky.  To me, the glitter gives the sky a Northern Lights appearance.  I love how it turned out!
I sure hope you can join us this week!  As always, there is a prize involved!  
You do not need to use craft metal, but if you have it, we would LOVE to see it!

edit-I am linking this card up to the End of Term Blog Hop over at Mynn's House of Cards.
