Warm Wishes

One more entry for SSS Flickr Challenge #25--white on white with a splash of color.  I used the framed snowflake included in the SSS Holiday Dies set & cut it from white felt, blue glitter paper & white cardstock.  The felt die cuts are backed with the cardstock to make them a bit firmer to work with. I inlaid the stars from the glitter die cuts & saved the rest for another card.  SSS Falling Snow stencil was used with white embossing paste--don't you love the look?!  I remembered to mask an area for my sentiment which I stamped in Brilliance Starlite Black.  The SSS Warm Wishes set is actually for summer with floral images, but this sentiment is perfect for snowy cards, too.  Finished off with a thin strip of the blue glitter paper.  Fun card to make, lots of texture & it's flat!  I'm also entering the holiday challenge at Addicted to Stamps & the great outdoors challenge at Dies R Us.  Thanks so much for stopping by.
