Freshly Made Sketches 324

Happy Valentines Day!  The calendar may say valentine, but here it's Christmas!  The newest sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, designed by Narelle, put me in mind of snowflakes!



And I'm sure that the color challenge at The Paper Players was supposed to inspire a valentine but it's a favorite color combo of mine for Christmas.  So I put aside the hearts and dug out the snowflakes instead.  I layered a white one and a very pretty platinum vellum one that is hard to see in the picture, but very pretty in real life.  And in keeping with my resolution to not wait until I'm mailing my Christmas cards this year to stamp the inside sentiment, this one says something on the inside.  I'm pleased to say that I'm 2 for 2 this year!  Yahoo!


Thanks for stopping by!  And I hope you can join us at Freshly Made Sketches this week.  My fellow DT teamies have got some fabulous cards to inspire you!

Supplies
Paper:  Crumb Cake, Real Red, Vellum (Stampin' Up!); Solar White (Neenah); Platinum Vellum (Graphix)
Accessories:  Snowflake Trio die (amuse studio); enamel dots (My Mind's Eye)

Gorgeous snowflake, Jen! I love that you chose red and white on Kraft, too...it's so striking!

A gorgeous snowflake! It tickles me that you saw a circle and automatically thought of snowflakes, which is so NOT what this Southerner thinks of. It must be all of that snow that you've been seeing lately.
