Believe in the magic

Hi, I'm back again just before bedtime to announce the start of our latest challenge over at ATSM.
This week is is appropriately -


Here is my caed

I needed some OL cards that would go through the post easily so decided on this design of masked panel and heat embossed snowflakes. The sentiment is from Crafters Companion and the snowflakes Personal Impressions along with inking with Blueprint Sketch and Salty Ocean DI. The extra snowflakes were added in the same colours, the larger ones heat embossed with Silver Pearl EP.

This week we are sponsored by

Masking and heat embossing

As You Like It Challenge
Gold or Silver

I chose silver pearl here because it gives the snowflakes a soft sparkle and works really well with the blue background to give the frosty feel I was looking for.
