Aqua Snowflakes

I love PTI MIM & this week is no exception!  Melissa's butterfly reminded me of What the Doodle: Snowflakes which I've barely used. 
I save every bit of my PTI cardstock & had a scrap of Aqua Mist that worked perfectly to cover a card I'd cut to the wrong size for another project.  After double white embossing the 3 larger snowflakes, I blended the centers with Hawaiian Shores.  The little snowflake images were randomly stamped in Hawaiian Shores.  I used Ocean Tides to stamp the sentiment from Snowflake Flurries.  A combination of white Nuvo Drops & Stardust Stickles were used for embellishment. 
Beautiful images really help when creating a simple card & I love this non-traditional monochromatic color combo.  Bonus--it's  nice & flat for mailing!  I'm also entering HLS Christmas Challenge & The Snippets Playground.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
