Blue & White Christmas

I die cut some of the largest image in the Hero Arts Bold Pop Design set awhile back. They were laying on my table & I suddenly saw them as snowflakes!  I covered one with Frosted Lace Stickles & layered on a glittered felt MFT snowflake & a pearl.  
The background almost went in the trash after I stamped the coordinating image in PTI Enchanted Evening on white cardstock.  
It didn't look at all like I wanted, so I sponged on the same ink as well as some Blueberry Sky. Then I dry embossed with the Darice snowflake folder & rubbed on some Picket Fence Distress Paint. What a difference! The white embossed sentiment is from another HA set. Always fun when a disaster ends up looking good. I'm entering the Anything Goes challenge at SSS Wed & SSS Work It Wednesday.
By the way, if you're in the market for Hero Arts, stop by a2z Scrapbooking where there's a Scavenger Hunt with a chance to win a $25 gift certificate.  The a2z Store also has a 20% off discount code throughout the weekend.  So glad you stopped by.
