Let The Snowflakes Begin

VLV Sketches
 
Diva Tosh brings us Verve's fourth sketch of the month and it was a fun one to play with.  I cheated just a bit by omitting the split panel and using a bigger circle.

This yummy MME paper was my starting point.  Love the touch of glitter on the leaves.  It's there, honest, just had a hard time capturing it on camera.

Carried the glitter theme over to the snowflake and used a lot of white accents - most likely due to a subconscious and very direct correlation with the colour of snow lol!  The card is fairly flat, so think I can get away with an easy mailing too :)

Oh, and for the record, the snowflakes in the title refer to the kind on my cards, not the kind that fall on the ground LOL!

 

What's In It?
Stamps: Memory Box 
Paper: I Believe (MME), Night of Navy, Burgundy, Sparkly Silver 
Ink: Black, VersaMark 
Accessories:  Snowflake Die (The Cat's Pajamas), Circle Nesties, Scalloped Border Punch (Stampin' Up), Crimper, Button, Silver Twine, Glue Dot, Dimensionals

Love that glittery snowflake! I really hope we get some real snow this year. We barely got any last year, and we had one of the worst years for seasonal allergies due to a warmer winter. :(

No matter how you dress them up or color them, your snowflakes always enhance your cards wonderfully! I have to say though, that sparkle is my favorite way to dress up!
