*Snowflake Circles in Squares*

I am having a tough time realizing that Christmas is coming so quickly! I think it's been the lack of snow and cold weather here.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not calling up Mother Nature and saying "bring on the winter weather woman!", but it's making it harder for me to realize that it's mid November not October still! I think Christmas will be here before I know it!!

I still have so much to do! Shopping (I still need ideas for many on my list... still need information from siblings-in-law about whether or not we're doing a gift exchange) and card making.

I almost panic when I think about it. Well, panic is a strong word. But I sure start to worry!!

Anway, on to brighter things....

I created this card after simply stamping one of these beautiful snowflakes on a scrap of cardstock. I didn't know what to do with it, but I knew I had to do something. I threw out the scrap and stamped the image again in a better ink than black, did a few more and this is the card I came up with.

Items Used:
*Cardstock: Stampin' Up! Whisper White, Silver; Shimmer Blue cardstock (unknown source)
*Images: Amuse; SandyLion
*Ink: Encore Metallic blue ink
*Embellishments: Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder; snowflake brad; silver cord
*Tools: Marvy Mega and Giga Scallop Square Punches; 1/16" hold punch; small corner rounder
