Snowflakes with Sparkle

I had something a bit different in mind for the Impression Obsession challenge, but this is how it turned out after work today.  I was determined to use these beautiful little IO snowflakes (DIE100-F) which I cut out of silver sparkle & navy cardstock. The silver snowflakes were glued into the negative spaces using Stickles so the white areas are also sparkly--really pretty in real life. This is one of my favorite sentiment stamps (B3585) & I use it every year.  I'm also entering the challenges at City Crafter Challenge Blog & Colour Me. Thanks so much for taking time to check my blog.

  16. Oh, this is perfect and spot on for the challenges! Love the gorgeous snowflakes! Beautiful!

    Sorry, I am so far behind Greta. I am preparing for my little guy and I to travel for the holidays, and I am no where near ready and only a little of my shopping complete. We were also a doggie day care this past weekend (ha!) We were pet sitting for two different friends at the same time. My son loved it. Needless to say, I didn't get much done for that matter! :-))))
