Snowflake Patterns

Good Morning.
So sorry to be inundating you with Christmas cards but once I get started, I find it hard to stop!  I have made more this year then ever before.  Guess the holiday spirit gets my creative juices flowing.
So here is today's card.   

 I began by grabbing my MISTI and inked up this wonderful snowflake by painting on Brushos.  Love the blue on blue look it created.  I punched that out and set it aside.
Next, I inked the stamp with Memento Grey ink and stamped the snowflake to either side.  I scored the lines using my ScorPal and my ScorBug and stamped the sentiment.

Adding my card to these challenges:

 CAS-ual Fridays- SNOWFLAKES

Simon Says- LET IT SNOW


Just Add Ink- ADD 'C' (cold)

Have a great week.

Supplies:  stamps- The Stampin Place, Recollections/ Memento ink/ ScorBug, ScorPal/ Brushos/ MISTI/ pearl/ pop dots/ Fiskars circle punch
