I Would Love to See a Snowflake This Close


I would love to see a snowflake this close-up. I am sure there are so many intricate patterns in each one, but they melt before you can see them -- or else they don't melt and make one big glob of a drift! This beautiful snowflake is from a set by Close to My Heart (CTMH) called New Fallen Snow. It has six beautiful flakes that are each unique.

My sketch is from Sketches! by Tamara. Click here to see what the rest of the Design Team did. Today's SCS Ways To Use It Challenge is all about pearls! I love pearls - they have long been my favorite embellishment (when I have them!) and they are definitely my favorite jewelry.

The piercing is done with an Ornare Piercing Template. You can purchase this at Our Daily Bread Designs, and see many others, HERE. I love the look of the different designs. The metallic paper is Prism's Metallic Silver and is available here.
On a totally different note, if you are looking for a unique gift (for a grandparent or loved one far away - perhaps a soldier!), then check out My Canvas. It is the best site I have found for creativity and design in photo books!


Stamps: New Fallen Snow by Close To My Heart (CTMH)
Paper: Whisper White, Prism Metallic Silver, Night of Navy
Ink: Night of Navy
Accessories: Cuttlebug EF, Pretties Kit, Silver Filagree Brads, navy organdy ribbon, Ornare piercing template

This is hilarious... well not your card, it's beautiful! But, what is funny (in a good way) is that I was JUST looking at this card on SCS this morning and loving it! You then left a comment on my blog after seeing my store, and so I came to check your blog out and there you were! The card I was viewing this morning! Crazy! Anyway... great blog, very nice! I'll be back for sure!
