I veered off the sketch a bit here as a few others beat me to the punch using a snowflake. I still wanted to use one so I opted to go with a square to change things up a bit LOL! I just had to use a snowflake because we got four inches of snow last night. One of my favorite things is to wake up to a blanket of freshly fallen snow and just enjoy the beauty of it. I just love the sight of the deciduous trees with their branches outlined in snow contrasting against the pine trees with snow on their branches. I also enjoy the quiet a snowfall brings. It mutes sound so nicely!! You can't even hear the cars driving down the road :D Needless to say the kids are bouncing off the walls and went to school fully geared up with sleds in hand so they can go sledding down the hill at recess and lunch time. To see the joy on their faces just warms my heart :D May have to have a few races down the hill with them after school - what can I say, I'm a kid at heart!!
I based my card around this wonderful ribbon from Mike's ribbon bin. I think I got ten rolls of the stuff and just as many in the blue and brown LOL! The snowflake is a Cuttllebug die with some bling in the middle for some zip. I crimped the brown panel to add more dimension and used the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the main panel as well as the scalloped square panel. My "enabling excuse" is it looks like snow and therefore I just HAD to use it LOL! Finished the card off by adding a sentiment tag. It's hard to see, but there are pink snowflakes on the tag and a bit of bling in the center of one of them. I fiddled with how to attach the tag for a while and finally settled on just adding a brad and gluing it on :D
That's it for today. Hope you have a wonderful day!
