Warmest Wishes



Today's card began with inspiration from 2 great challenges: Merry Monday and PTI MIM. First step was to pick a stamp for making a square frame. I have a couple like Dawn used & plan to make cards with them. But since I wanted to use
39
DAWN'S CARD
the Snowflake Flurries for my circles, I decided this little leafy image from Lovely Layers was a better choice. 
It's actually really fun to use this way or to make a border. My inks are PTI Aqua Mist & Memento Love Letter. Not sure I've ever used this combo before, but I'm really loving it. I added stickles to the snowflake centers & the large one is popped up.  I'm also entering the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays since my card front is dry embossed with the dots--more circles!--& the CAS challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday. Thanks for letting me know what you think.
