SNOWFLAKES

This is one of those cards that started entirely differently in my head - and then the inlaid snowflake was a bit off and had to fix that (couldn't just write it off as another piece of paper!) - but rather like the end result.  Actually, I had wanted to follow the sketch from CAS(E) This Sketch and got that turned around too - a whole lot of creative license here!!

Anyway, inlaid the large snowflake and covered up the boo-boo with vellum and glitter snowflakes, added another on the bottom to balance and gave each a nice shiny silver gem and called it a day.  This is also for the Merry Monday challenge which is snowflakes and neutral colors.  I didn't add a sentiment 'cause I thought it would make it too busy for my taste.

Supplies: HA Snowflake D1064; Impression Obsession small snowflake; Neenah metallic cs; SU glitter cs; Teresa Collins "Tinsel & Company" pp; HA silver gemstone; PTI vellum

Thanks for stopping and your kind comments.  Betty
