Snowflakes in June

Hi, hope you are having a fab weekend.
Just having a little chill time in the craft room after a visit from my Grandson. He came on Friday, after we had been out for tea for his Mum's birthday. Nich and Joe were off to a child free wedding on Saturday, so we had him 'til this morning.
I think he had a great time and so did we, except for the early mornings! Even with all the fresh country air he is still up before six!
Any how here is a card I made as a response to the MUSE Christmas Visions challenge.


It was very quick and easy to put together.
Here is the gorgeous Muse card by Elizabeth Stewart.


I took the blue glitter background, I only had this pale blue, the all over pattern, I used a Creative Expressions cover plate and the vellum stamped sentiment with an underlay of the same blue glitter card.
My first idea was to fit the coverplate into the glitter card but that was before I realised how many teeny tiny pieces there were, it would have taken me 'til Christmas!
So I kept it very simple so very quick and layered it all up on a white base card. The square embellies were in my stash and had been for years so I thought I would use them up. The white embossed sentiment on vellum, is from a free Polka Doodles set that has been in the stash for an absolute age and I wrapped it over some left over glitter card 
OK, that's it from me.
I'd like to join in over at -

  8. I love Vellum, you can do so much with it and I really like how you overlayed your sentiment here, so that lovely die can still be seen. Great work!

  15. Such a soft and elegant design! I think it was a good call to place this wonderul die cut on top of your blue panel instead of trying to inlay it. I think it als adds more dimension.
