Gentle Snowflakes

Happy World Card Making Day!!!

Great day to be stamping out some more Christmas cards and then wouldn't you know it, my camera died.  It has been acting up for awhile so is in the shop for repairs....may be weeks!!  AAHHH!! 
 Hence, the poor photo taken with my phone. 

Well anyways, saw this challenge at Splitcoast and wanted to play along.  Here are the cookies that inspired my card from the Cotton and Crumbs site:


I began creating the background by sponging over a Spellbinders Impression Plate that I have had forever and never used with Distress inks.  When dry, I stamped the sentiment from PTI with Memento black ink.  I die cut the snowflakes (Spellbinders again) and leaving the paper in the die, sponged on some more of the background inks.  I tied it all up with a pretty silver string.

Also adding my card to these challenges:
