Letterpress Snowflakes

Hi Crafters,

A Happy Valentine's Day!

I haven't got a Valentine card to share with you but another Christmas card, thought I would try and keep ahead of the game with them.

This time I have letter pressed a Sheena Douglas embossing folder with Summer Sky Memento ink for my background and used this lovely, large sentiment die from Ultimate Crafts cut from Glitter card.

This is a 5" x 7" card so you can see what a lovely size that die is. It also has a few snowflakes of it's own but I wanted to concentrate on the ones in the background.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
CHNC Every Saturday - #268 Colour Blue
CHNC Christmas - February Challenge

Enjoy your Sunday!

Very effective use of the embossing folder Lorraine and that sentiment is a good size to really make a card without the need for much embellishing.
