Frenzy of Flurries


Snowy days are ahead.  
Don't know if I'm ready for that but here is a card for Christmas featuring some fun snowflakes.

I began by stamping the snowflakes all over my white cardstock, then embossed using white powder.  Then, I rubbed on Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean Distress inks over the top leaving some white areas near the bottom of my card.  Stamped the sentiment from Hero Arts and then splattered with white paint to add to the feeling of snow.  I thought the pearls added a nice touch.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Christmas is quickly approaching, too quick in my opinion.  Glad to have another card finished.
Thanks so very much for the visit.

Supplies:  stamps- SU, PB/ Distress inks/ Memento bl/ wh embossing powder/ pearls/ heat tool/ ink applicator
