Snowflakes

I have been wanting to participate in the Embellish Magazine Color challenge, and I am finally able to do so. Check out this inspiration picture:

I just loved this color combo! I haven't used yellow in awhile, and it is so nice and cheerful, so I just had to find the time! I also used the sketch from Papertake Weekly:

Here is my entry:

I printed the sentiment on cream cardstock with my computer. The fancy font is Freebooter Script and the block style font is Californian. I embossed the kraft cardstock with the Cuttlebug Victoria folder.

I added a ribbon ruffle at the bottom. I found this fancy ribbon some time ago, and just never had an occasion to use it. I also used the Fiskars Apron Lace punch at the bottom. In addition to various snowflake stamps, I used the Guidelines Two images for some of the snowflakes on the cream cardstock with the sentiment. I sprinkled some sparkly embossing powder on the stamped snowflakes and heat embossed for a little sparkle. But I love sparkle, so it really needed the little gems too!


My favorite little tool these days is the iTop - I can make brads to match anything! For these brads, I stamped one of the images from the Papertrey Ink Guidelines 2 set using Dark Chocolate ink on aqua cardstock.

Thanks so Much for Looking!
