KLSNS Nov. Challenge - Snowflakes

Over at KL Stampin N Scrapin blog the November Challenge is Snowflakes!! It's times like this that make me wish I had a snowflake punch because Deb created an awesome snowflake tutorials with all kinds of awesome things to do with punched out snowflakes. But since I would only use snowflakes once a year I try not to buy one...however, someone should hint to my family that it would make a great present!!
Anyway, back to my card. Luckily for me, I still had 1 more of these blue metal snowflakes that I picked up at Michael's 2 years ago. I've been trying really hard to use up my supplies that I've been hoarding!! I took my snowflake and pressed it onto my Essential Glue pad. Then, I poured glitter all over it!! Yummy glittery goodness!! Next, I stamped large dots with white ink onto blue cardstock. I printed off some blue text from my computer and added a strip of that as well to a silver card base. I finished the card off with some blue twill, a button, some twine, and a small tag with my Christmas sentiment. Oh yeah, and 2 of the corners are rounded. All in all, I kinda like this card. Thanks to KLSNS for encouraging me to use up this snowflake!! Supplies: Stamps - Polka Dot Basics, Mixed Messages (Papertrey Ink); Ink - Enchanted Evening (Papertrey Ink), Whisper White craft (Stampin' Up!); Paper - silver (unknown), Enchanted Evening, Select White (Papertrey Ink); Other - metal snowflake (Michaels), Dazzling Diamonds (Stampin' Up!), Essentials Glue Pad (Tsukineo), button (Papertrey Ink), twill (Stampin' Up!), tag die (Provo Craft), corner rounder. This is one of 4 posts I've got on here today!! I have been very busy having fun with some challenges and can't wait to share them with you. Don't forget to add a comment to my blog candy give away (not here...go to the right post!). Have a great day!! Donelda
