Snowflake Flurries

It's been feeling like summer here, but I know a lot of the country has been cold & snowy.  I really don't need an excuse to make Christmas cards anyway--they're my favorite & I make them all year long.  I'm working on flat designs so I can avoid the extra postage.  PTI MIM calls for scoring & the One Layer Christmas Card Challenge is about to close, too.  
Still had my much loved PTI Snowflake Flurries on the table & didn't get too creative, except that I don't think I've used Winter Wisteria & Spring Rain together.  Pretty combination that I want to use again with other images.  I scored 2 lines above & below, masked, clear embossed & sponged.  Decided to add small water splats & then brushed with Wink of Stella.  I used a ruler & black marker to define the area & like it much better than before.  So glad I got the mini Misti which I used to get a nice deep shade of the Winter Wisteria for the sentiment from the same set. Simple embellishing with tiny gems--one of my favorites.  I'm also entering at SSS Work it Wednesday & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for stopping by.

  3. Love this Greta, what a great color combo!! The black lines really make the focal panel pop. I think we experienced all four seasons in one day yesterday LOL!! We had sunshine mild temps (low 50's), then came the rain, then thunder, bright blue flashes of lightening and sideways rain, fast falling temps and then snow!! Yep...welcome to April in Ohio!!
