The Joy of Snowflakes

Hello, stamping friends. It is Shirley posting and I have a snowflake card to share with you for challenge #117-Let It Snow.

I started with a white base. I used the Memory Box Distressed Baptisia Collage die on the lower corner of the card. I cut a piece of Stardream Rose Quartz card stock to use for the layer on the inside of the card so it shows through the top part of the card.

I also used Stardream Rose Quartz to use with the Sue Wilson Joy - Festive Collection die. I put a layer of gray card stock behind it to make it stand out. I really like the pink and gray color combination.

I cut a gray snowflake using the Memory Box Rizza Snowflake die. I cut another one from pink to make the pink center of the snowflake.

I wanted to add a couple of small snowflakes to my card in the pink Stardream Rose Quartz card stock. They were cut using the Impression Obsession Small Snowflake set die.

The finishing step to my card was adding silver sequins. I adhered the sequins and all the card parts using
Art Institute Dries Clear Adhesive.

Shirley, only you would think to use pink to express the JOY that snow seems to bring to us - at least when we don't have too much! Love how you featured the Baptisia corner behind the grey snowflake, then reversed the colors by backing the JOY die with grey. The sequins were the perfect way to accentuate the 'sparkle' snowflakes bring to our hearts! Great card!
