Pretty Snowflakes

Hey everyone!  Just popping in to share another Christmas card. I wanted to play along with a few challenges, in paticular, Muse: Christmas Visions, as one of my STAMPlorations Teamies, Suchi, is the muse this week.  This is her card...


Awesome, right?  And here's my card....


I was inspired by the awesome sponging Suchi did in the one corner of her card and my two larger snowflakes are like the two skate wreaths she had in her card.  So, what I did was stamp my snowflakes (Hero Arts) and my little dots (STAMPlorations) and embossed them in white.  Then I took Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress ink and sponged over top.  I spritzed water over top to create water droplets which kind of remind me of bokeh, don't you think?  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.  I love the non-traditional colours of this card. :-)

Well, thanks for stopping by for a visit!  Have a fantastic day!

I'd like to link up to the following challenges:

52 (Christmas) Card Throwdown - pick a previous theme.  I chose challenge #4 Snowflakes April 2012.
