Faux Embossed Snowflakes

I know, I know.....another blue card...so sorry although a few of my followers say keep it coming!
I have wanted to try the 'faux' embossed bkg for awhile now so here we go.
I die cut various snowflakes from the same colour paper as the bkg.  I then glues them all onto the panel then sanded them with an emery board.  Since the paper I used has a white core, hints of the white peek through after sanding.  I then mounted the panel on a crisp white card and added the silver twine with the sweet snowflake button I found.

I am adding my card to a few challenges:
CAS-ual Fridays; Let it Snow
Addicted to CAS; snowflakes
Simon Says; Let it Snow
Thanks so much for taking a peek.  

Supplies:  stamps; Paper Smooches/ Scorebug/ snowflakes dies-SSS, Spellbinder/ silver twine/ snowflake button
