FESTIVE SNOWFLAKES

I love this week's SCS Color Challenge #196 of TAKEN WITH TEAL, RIDING HOOD RED, BAJA BREEZE, and WHISPER WHITE! What FUN colors for a Christmas card! I decided to combine these colors with today's SCS Sketch Challenge #206. As much as I loved both of these challenges, I was really hoping to create something spectacular ... BUT, after alot of fussing over this card, my end result looks much like many others that have been posted on SCS. Oh well! ... some days you got it, some days you don't!

I had some difficulty finding a sentiment for this card that was small enough to fit in the bottom right hand corner, and ended up with this "merry & bright" from the retired stamp set, All Year Cheer I. The Little Felt Flurries (LOVE THESE!) are mounted on White Circle Metal Edge Tags, and the Taken With Teal piece behind them was run through the Cuttlebug with the Snowflake Embossing Folder. RECIPE
Stamps: sentiment from All Year Cheer I (retired)
Paper: Ski Slope DP, Whisper White, Riding Hood Red, Taken With Teal, and Baja Breeze CS
Ink: Riding Hood Red
Embellishments: Circle White Metal Edge Tags, Little Felt Flurries, Riding Hood Red Taffeta Ribbon
Tools: Snowflake Cuttlebug Embossing Folder & Cuttlebug Machine (non-SU)
Supplies: Stampin' Dimensionals
