Stampin'B Challenge - Snowflakes

Joanne was the hostess for this week's Stampin'B's challenge, and her theme was snowflakes, snowflakes, snowflakes.

I took her literally and included lots of snowflakes on my card. The main image, of course, is that cute snowman from Mark's Finest Papers' set Snowman Country -- colored with blues and grays. The snow falling on him was created using one of the Stampin' Up Itty Bitty Backgrounds. I embossed a piece of DCWV adhesive cardstock, using a Sizzix die. Because the cardstock has a white back, I was able to sand off some of the blue color, making the snowflakes more visible. I found that wonderful bling at Hobby Lobby on sale at 50% off for a pack of four different snowflakes.
