Cool Winter Wishes

Quick post as I'm late to bed, but didn't want to miss the Merry Monday & Freshly Made Sketches challenges. Finally cut into this beautiful pink snowflake paper I've had for years & used my MFT snowflake dies & Nightshift Blue felt for the first time, as well as the Inkadinkado flourish stamp. I added Stickles to the larger snowflake & the dots on the printed paper.  
The stitching is provided by Lil' Inkers dies & the sentiment is by Rubber Soul.  The 2 strips are stamped in Distress Ink chipped sapphire, as is the sentiment. The dot stamp is by Hero Arts.  I don't use a lot of buttons, but I do like this pearly one in the center of the snowflakes. Fortunately, Merry Monday allows twine or ribbon to be used. The dark blue is really pretty in person, even though it looks black in the picture.  
Christmas are my favorite cards to make & I had fun putting this one together.  I'll also enter at the City Crafter Blog where the theme is Christmas in July. Thanks so much for stopping by.

  7. Hello Greta,
    Christmas is my favourite time to make cards as well and I have begun.
    This card is a change from the traditional palette, but I am loving the soft effect you have created, plus it is so very feminine.
