Single Snowflake

Welcome to another challenge at Fusion!

I just love the inspiration pic - grays and neutrals get me every time ๐Ÿ˜ƒ And I also played along with the sketch - rather literally!



The snowflake is white embossed onto vellum and die-cut.  To make it pop more, I added a stitched circle behind it in red, that I colored with clear Wink of Stella.  The sentiment is also white embossed.  Blueprints dies were used for the two gray layers and everything is on a white card base.  Pretty simple!


Thanks for visiting!  I'm linking this card to Merry Monday and also MFT's Color Challenge.

Stamps:  Hand Lettered Holiday, Simply Snowflakes (MFT)
