Snowflake Joy ...

It's a quick post to share a card I made this afternoon - well I put it together today but it is made with pieces of leftover inked and distressed card stock. This week's challenge at "Less is More" is a colour challenge and how lucky am I? it just happens to be my go to colours for this year's Christmas cards - turquoises, ice blue, teal - see below for the details.

Here is the card, simple in design with just a little colour.

It is not the most exciting or imaginative card that I've ever created but ideas are in short supply at the moment.  I've been busy making stock for a couple of craft fairs as well working on some Christmas presents and my brain can nly concentrate on a limited number of things at once!

This is the Design Seeds picture showing the colours for the challenge:

As well as the "Less is More" challenge I am going to enter this month's challenge over at Virginia's View Challenge where the theme is "Distressed".

I used the following:

Distress Inks - tumbled glass, peacock feathers, evergreen bough
Impressions Holographic embossing powder
Sizzix snowflake die



  1. Well, it may be simple in design but you've managed to include most of the challenge colours which is no mean feat! The end result is beautiful & I love the subtle background.

  2. Super duper CaS Elaine. Thanks for your comment on my blog. You are very welcome to case my card, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, don`t they say. I do find designs like that are great for batch making although I can`t do more than about 10 before I get bored and have to do a different design.
