Die Cuttin' Divas Snowflake Challenge

It's been pretty cold around my neck of the woods, but very little precipitation.

Although it is kind of nice that we are not having to shovel snow, we really need the snowpack to keep our reservoirs  full.

And, on a side note, my daughter has a Husky who would love to go frolicking in the snow :)

This week  our challenge over at Die Cuttin' Divas is about snow.

The challenge is "Snowflakes".

.





For my card I used a cut file from Silhouette Design Store which you can purchase here.
I sized the 3 snowflakes and then cut them out of white, silver and blue glitter paper.



I used a snowflake embossing folder to continue the theme.

For just a bit more sparkle I added a few rhinestones.


Supplies used: card stock - white, glitter paper in blue, silver and white;  Silhouette cut file, stamp from Recollections, snowflake embossing folder, Martha Stewart border punch, rhinestones.

Now pop on over to Die Cuttin' Divas and see all the fabulous inspiration the rest of the design team has come up with.


Hope to see you playing along with us!!!!
