Winter Snow- CAS Watercolour Challenge

Happy New Year and Welcome!
Time for some fun and a new challenge at the 

Our theme this month is Winter and we welcome our talented guest Janet aka Swanlady Impressions.

So onto my card details.
Very simple CAS card made using the Embossing Folder Technique.
I inked up my Snowflakes EB folder with some DOX ink, sprayed with water and then pressed my paper into the wet ink.  After the piece had dried, I placed it inside my Misti and stamped the sentiment.  I simply mounted that onto a piece of white cardstock and then onto a white card base using pop dots.  I added some blue Nuvo Drops to the center of the snowflakes to give them more interest.  

Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

You and I are both in our personal colour heaven with the blue and white that is so perfect for a winter themed card! Love the embossing folder stamping and the great variation in shades of blue. The snowflakes stand out perfectly against them. Thanks for making such a beautiful card for the challenge I'm hosting!
