Icy Blue

Today's card was created for the Inspiration at Splitcoast from the Hollanders Paper and Bookmaking Supplies (inspiration photo below).  Fabulous papers to be inspired by for sure.
The silver snowflakes on my card began as a Christmas gift bag that was torn and no good anymore.  I die cut the flakes and added them to my stamped bkg.  The sentiment is from Penny Black and embossed with silver and the rest is stamped using Distress ink.
I am also adding my card to the Addicted to CAS challenge (snowflakes); Less is More Challenge (metallic plus one other colour); Simon Says Stamp Challenge (make your own bkg.) and Keep it Simple (snow).
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black, Kaiser, PTI/ Distress ink/ recycled gift bag/ snowflake die; SSS/ pop dots

Hi Karen. LOVE the collage stamping in the background. Fabulous color combo with the white, blue and silver. Your snowflake die is the star and is just amazing. Thanks for joining us at ATCAS. Loll xx
