Snowy Thanks


Morning.

I have been making a few thank-you cards for all the most wonderful Christmas and birthday gifts I received.  Here is one I did with a snow theme.

I have had a snowflake stencil I bought at the Dollar Store in my stash for years and decided to use it for the base of my card.  
I laid the stencil on my card and pressed my Versamark pad directly over the stencil, removed it then heat embossed with white powder.  I then sprinkled purple and blue Brushos over and sprayed with water to activate.  While that dried, I stamped the thanks for a set by SSS on a white panel and added it to the bottom using pop dots.

Adding my card to these challenges:

Little Red Wagon- THANK YOU CARDS

CASology- SIMPLE



Double D Challenges- FORGET ME NOT


Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks so very much for popping in.

Supplies:  stamps- SSS/ stencil-Dollar Store/ Brushos/ Versamark/ wh EB powder/ pop dots/ Memento bl ink
