*Copied Myself!*

OK... welcome to Calgary.... sigh.... we've been having some amazing temperatures here and our snow has been melting quite quickly. But being a Calgarian, we all know that this isn't the end of the winter weather. We all know that there will be more snow.

And more snow there is. It started around 4 yesterday afternoon and so far there is approximately 11cm on the ground (just over 4"). At least it's not too cold (just below 0) and at least the forecast is calling for above freezing temperatues in the afternoon all week. But really... just when the kids had gotten out their bikes and put away their mitts!

Today's card is a copy of myself. I loved this Retro Christmas Card I made back in December so I used it as inspiration with some new papers I bought last week.

Things of note: There is bling in the centre of the flower as well as the four corners of the chocolate square. The flower is two layers of die cut cardboard covered in the decorative papers. I also coloured the flower with my Sakura Stardust clear gel pen for some sparkle


items used:
*papers: My Mind's Eye, Fontworks
*cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White Cardstock and Chocolate Chip
*ink: Stampin' Up! Chocolate Chip Classic
*ribbon: Michaels
*etc: bling, Sakura Stardust Clear Gel Pen
*tools used: Cuttlebug with flower die cut, small corner rounder

Love the card! The paper is beautiful! (and I have the Warmest Regards Hostess set on it's way to me now - I think that's what you used?)
OK that bit about snow is depressing - we've had great melting days in SK too and I don't want anymore snow! (don't send it my way)
