Sweet Snowflakes

Well - we've had two snowstorms in two days - so I guess I'm really over dosing on snowflakes - so, of course - I made a card for the Curtain Call - Sweet Snowflakes.  These snowflakes are much prettier than the ones that fell on my driveway that I had to shovel away!
I used Mona Pendleton's beautiful Sophisticated Snowflakes from MFT -  clear embossing them on white card stock.   Then I sponged over the panel with Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet Ranger Distress Inks.
I added enamel dots to the centers of 3 of the snowflakes and layered the panel on my card base with foam dots.  
 
I haven't put a sentiment on this card and may just put one on the inside when I decide what event I will need it for!

Stamps:  Sophisticated Snowflakes - MFT
Paper:  white - PTI
Ink:  Ranger Distress Tumbled Glass and Victorian Velvet, Versamark
Accessories:  clear embossing powder, heat gun, blending tool - Ranger, enamel dots - My Minds Eye, foam dots.

Love, love, love, Julia!! I have some older stamps made to look like lace and this design would be perfect for them! Thank you so much for the inspiration. I love the background coloring and those enamel dots are sah-weet to finish it off!
