Winter Snowflakes

Hello Everyone,

Creative with Stamps have graciously invited me to their guest designer from mid-October to mid-January. So, for now, I say goodbye and thank you to my lovely hosts. That said, this is my last inspiration post for Creative with Stamps. Here is my card for today, enjoy!

Snowflakes is the name of the game at Creative with Stamps.
The frosty ombre blue is so pretty in contrast with the black background snowflakes.
Challenge #22


The snowflake border on top of the card is from SU; isn't it beautiful?
 The other die-cut snowflakes were also done using the ombre effect. I wanted contrast. I used the light area of the snowflake in the dark sky and vice versa.

The banner comes from the same die set as the snowflake border die.
I used a small portion of the die to create the stitched scallop banner.
The stamp is a find from Salvation Army for sixty-nine cents!
The sentiment is so well done and so true to its word.
 Entering Challenges:
Cupcake Inspirations: Challenge #437 
Make My Monday: Challenge #62- Blue and White
Stamping Sensations: January Challenge- Cold and    Frosty Colours
Cardz 4 Guys- Challenge #186- January Blues

I also want to thank you for taking time out of your busy life to visit me. I am always touched by your visits. I will be back with more from TheGrandStampede. So until next take care and happy stamping.
