Christmas Snowflakes

 
I WILL get all my Christmas cards completed before December this year......I WILL get my Christmas cards completed before December this year!  Maybe if I keep telling myself that, it'll happen!   This was a very CAS and quick card using that pretty Scrollwork embossing folder again.  I heat embossed the sentiment that's from Stampabilities with silver embossing powder and then punched the snowflakes in some type of paper that looks silver, then blue, then pink, etc.....I'm sure that paper has a name but it's beyond me right now.  I also put a little pearl in the center of each snowflake.

Also just a quick note of thanks to a couple of ladies for two different blog awards that I received in the last few weeks.  Be sure and check out their wonderful blogs when you have time - and be inspired -   Shawna over at Paper Kisses and Inky Wishes and Dixie at EmbelliButtons.  Thanks to both of you fabulous ladies for this.  And as I always do, I'll pass the awards to all who blog - you provide me with so much inspiration each and every day.

I'll  be entering this is the Southern Girls Challenge that has the theme of "start of Winter Christmas".

Thanks for stopping by............
Lynn

Beautiful! Love that scrollwork. I'm going to get that folder for sure now that I've seen this card. I had bypassed it before but now I see how effective it can be. The sparkly snowflakes are so incredible! For CAS, this really has a huge impact!

So pretty, Lynn, the snowflakes stand out so well against the white background...
