Snowflakes inside and out

Well tonight it's snowing a little here, not settling but I had to make a quick snowflake card!

Last night I went to Stamp Attic's Christmas party and succumbed to Tim Holtz stamps at 10% off. Wendy tells me she also has free p&p until 18 December so if you're after Tim Holtz stamps now is the time to get them:).

This week has been real madness but I had a quick play this afternoon with the snowflake stamp and made a card following Papertake Challenge's sketch for this week. Basic Grey's Challenge is to use the colour combo of cream, pink and blue, which fits the Eskimo Kisses papers to perfection. I'm also entering Stamp Something's Winter Wonderland themed challenge with it.

Snowflakes were white embossed onto white card and Memento, Adirondack and Distress inks applied with a sponge over them. I've added some pearl gems to some of the snowflake centres. The lovely felt snowflake border comes from Stamp Attic, it stands out better in real life.

Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers and the sentiment is from Craftwork Cards. Looking forward to playing some more with the stamps :)
