Pastel Snowflakes

 Hi!  It's a long weekend here in New Zealand - the first since June - so I'm making the most of it by making cards.  This card uses the colours from this week's Color Throwdown challenge.

I had in mind to stamp some pastel snowflakes and ended up making three cards using these colours.

I stamped three snowflake stamps three times each and white-embossed them, before die-cutting them.  I then dry-embossed a strip of each of the three colours and adhered them down the sides of three card bases.

I chose a modern-looking sentiment and stamped it with Versafine Onyx Black ink in the bottom right corner of the card bases.  After that I arranged the snowflakes on each card and finished with some enamel dots in the colour of the embossed strip.  I didn't have any lavender dots, so used clear gems for that card.

I'm also linking this up to a new-to-me challenge called Peace on Earth 
Thanks for visiting!
