Baby It's Cold Outside

Pinspired Challenge #2 is to use this image for inspiration for a project:

I originally planned to incorporate some stars and hearts, in addition to the snowflakes, but my first design was just too busy. I settled on the snowflakes instead. I stamped a Hero Arts snowflakes stamp with Memento Bahama Blue ink onto Bazzill white cardstock. I let the ink dry a little, and then sprinkled some silver embossing powder over the snowflakes. I brushed a little of the powder away, to make sure you could still see the blue underneath. Then heated it up and added a sentiment from Sweet Stamp Shop to finish it off.

The overall card layout is based on a card by Julie Ebersole as part of the Clean and Simple Card Making 2 online class I'm currently taking. Her card used a dogwood image, seems to work well for snowflakes too!  I had lots of fun making this card, hope you've enjoyed seeing it!
