*Snowflakes.... Brrrrrr*

OK, it wasn't snowing today, but it is still bitterly cold!! We broke a 110 year old record for a temperature low last night. Yup, it's that cold. There is a light at the end of the tunnel... still be low normal, but better than what it's been!

The cold weather makes me think of snowflakes. It also helps that there's quite a bit of snow on the ground!

This card looks so much better in person. The scan didn't do it any justice so I took a digital photo instead. And even then, it's not as good here as it is in my hand. I started with a Buckaroo Blue card cut to 4.25"X8.5". I took the snowflake image (Stampers Choice) and stamped it int he centre of the card in silver ink and embossed it in silver. I then stamped Seasons Greetings (Hero Arts) across it in Buckaroo Blue classic ink. I added a silver edge all around the card with a silver paint pen and three clear jewels to the bottom right corner. A piece of Vintage Violet stitched ribbon across the top finished it off.

Thanks for looking!

This is such a peaceful design. Stunning! I would have never guessed it was done on B. Blue. My camera does funky things to the color as well.
