Snowflakes and Circles

Morning.  Must be the change in the weather that has made me think about getting some Christmas cards made and the fact that I received some new Penny Black products to play with.  I love to stencil, so when I saw this challenge at Splitcoast I was off to get my stencils and Distress inks. 
I began by stenciling random circles with a stencil that I cut from acetate using Distress ink.  Using the new Snow Dance stencil from Penny Black, I stenciled the snowflakes over selected circles keeping the balance of my card in mind.  I die cut the new 'Let it Snow' sentiment from the Joyous Wishes and then added the half pearls.  

I am also adding my card to these challenges:

Supplies:  stencils- Penny Black, homemade/ Distress ink- Peacock Feathers, Faded Jeans/ Die cut Penny Black/ pearls

Winter seems a long way off when the sun shines like it has today, but there is definately a chill in the evening. Love the masked circles which resemble tumbling flakes.
Thanks for sharing it with us at ATSM this week. :)
