Caribbean Snowflakes

Hi!  Today's card was made for the current Muse challenge, as well as  the Thanks/Thanksgiving theme at Simon Says Stamp, the inspiration pic challenges at City Crafter and The Challenge and the snow/white theme at Simply Create Too.

We don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in NZ, so I've gone with a general thanks card.  I used the blue/white colors in the inspiration photos and from Anita's gorgeous card I was inspired by the white on white layers, the layout, and the tag with the hearts.  In my case, I used a die-cut snowflake.


My snowflakes were stamped with Caribbean Blue ink and I also smooshed some onto some white card for the layers above and below the snowflakes.  The snowflake panel and the die-cut snowflake were spritzed with a Perfect Pearls/water mix.  Everything on this card happens to be Simon Says Stamp product, apart from the twine, which is from Lawn Fawn.


Thanks for visiting.

I have to say that I do love snowflakes - as long as they are on a card and not on the ground! These are so pretty in blue and I love the bit of shimmer!

This card is so pretty! I am such a fan of the way you made the section of snowflakes. I really like the look you created by coloring one thick strip of snowflakes. It's a great element and the piece of baker's twine is perfect! What a wonderful idea to turn a seasonal element into a thank you card, too! I feel utterly inspired and am so glad you shared this with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
