A new use for wallpaper samples

Don't you just love a bit of sparkle , well I think my hubby thinks I'm part magpie as I'm drawn to sparkle but when it comes to jewellery it has to be of the high end quality and unfortunately for my husband that tends to be expensive but that doesn't mean I'm not choosy as I only have a select few pieces  that I truly cherish.

When it comes to cards that's a different matter and I'm all fr some bargain sparkle so when shopping for wallpaper in a certain DIY store that has a 2 letter name with an and in the middle I found this fab wallpaper and decided to bring home a sample. For those who are pink lovers they also had it in pink. It's glitter paper and has some great shine but as it's  wallpaper there is no shed. In my book that makes it perfect. I did think about buying a full roll but if I did I think it would last me forever.
Anyway the card I have to share with you is a square card and I cut a slightly smaller square of white card for the top layer of my card. I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch and created a grid of 9 snowflakes. I cut a piece of wallpaper just big enough to fit behind the snowflake layer and then mounted on my base card. I am so happy with this card and the wallpaper too.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges;-
