PTI Blog Hop Snow

Blog-hop-logo
Finished up this card I started last night so I'd have at least one card for today's PTI Blog Hop. I had impressed the hexagon coverplate to use for MIM 189 & immediately saw it was not going to work for me.  I cut off the ruined part & stamped the small image from Snowflake Flurries using Brilliance Gamma Green & Rocket Red.  I had just looked at the Merry Monday theme, so those colors were in my head.  Usually snowflake cards seem to be blue & white, but it was fun to change it up. I used my white gel pen & Stickles Frosted Lace in the center of each snowflake.  The sentiment from the same set was stamped on a panel & then embossed with Taylored Expressions Snowfall embossing folder. Just a bit of foam tape to mount the hexagon panel, so still flat for mailing.  
Leaf raking day, but hopefully I'll have time to do some more cards later.  Thanks so much for stopping by & enjoy the hop.
