Two Challenges in One

Hi there

It's a lovely wet day here in Auckland - great crafting weather :)

Over at Stampin Fun and Firends CherylAnn has set another challenge - this time to use a big snowflake on a card or 3D project.  I wasn't going to enter as I don't own any snowflake dies or stamps then remembered I still had Season of Joy which has a snowflake stamp (it's not big but it will have to do).  So then I was trying to think what type of layout to use so I checked out some challenge sites.  I love this sketch from Mojo Monday and my card came together really quickly - would have been quicker if I'd looked in the rubbish bin first when trying to find my Bigshot multipurpose platform!!

Here's a close up showing the bling on the snowflakes:
For the top snowflake I stamped it first with VersaMark then Marina Mist ink then added Iridescent Ice Embossing Powder - for the other one I just added Dazzling Diamonds after I'd embossed it with Clear Embossing Powder.

Stamp - Season of Joy (retired)
Card Stock - Whisper White, Marina Mist, Real Red
Ink - Marina Mist, Real Red
Other - Iridescent Ice, Clear Embossing Powder, Fancy Fan Embossing Folder, Scallop Trim Punch, 1 1/4" and 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Dazzling Diamonds, Pear Pizzaz Ribbon (retired)

Keep dry and have a great rest of the weekend.
