Snowflakes ...

I can't believe that it is Sunday evening already ... back to work tomorrow after a week's holiday!  I was lucky enough to spend part of the week in Edinburgh visiting my son, always a treat ... I've also made time to get creative!

This is today's creation ... 

Once again I'm having trouble with my photography ... this definitely looks better in real life!  
The inspiration for my card came from this week's challenge at "Less is More" where the theme is layered stamping.  I have a number of floral stamps designed for layered stamping but I never have much success with them so instead I decided that snowflake stamps were the way to go besides I need more Christmas cards!.  I began by stamping a snowflake background stamp and then layered on some individual snowflakes.  I then stamped and heat embossed the sentiment over the top.

I used:
UNIKO - Stunning Snowflakes
            - Background Blocks: Falling Snow
            - Festive Sentiments
Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Mermaid Lagoon and Blueprint Sketch
