Winter's butterflies ...

I'm off to a flying start this week - I've already managed to create a card, cut out 25 small hearts, 24 medium hearts, 15 pieces for 5 cushions and pattern pieces for 2 minions!  Now it's time to create a blog post and update my Facebook page before bed!

This is the card:

Never before have I had a sentiment stamp that exactly matched the theme of a challenge but today I have! The current challenge at TIME OUT is to be inspired by the words - "Snowflakes are Winter's butterflies", the exact words I have used!  My original plan was to use some blue and turquoise ink with just a few embossed snowflakes but once I had embossed a couple of snowflakes I decided to keep my design to silver and white.  I cut the stamped panel to add some dimension and interest.

I used:
Uniko  Stunning Snowflakes
Versafine Onyx Black ink
Personal Impressions Silver Dollar Embossing powder
Crafter's Companion Watercolour card

I am entering the following challenges:

TIME OUT #45 - Snowflakes are Winter's Butterflies
UNIKO #27 - Anything Christmas with the optional twist of CAS
Addicted to CAS  #77 - Dimension
AAA Cards #53 Anything Goes
