Sunday is my crafting time. I love getting into my craft room first thing in the morning. Usually it's been cleaned during the weekend so it's a clean table and a clean slate. I am all for a creative mess but sometimes you need to clean everything out to clear your mind and get creative again.
This card was brewing in my mind for a few days after I saw several inspirational challenges. Then it all came out today in one go. Quick and easy, and I think it turned out really nice. The card was heavily inspired by the Winter Wonder image over at Curtain Call and the cue card over at CASology, which was Light. The snowflake ornament was inspired by the image over at the Friday Mashup where the challenge is to use a snowflake or create a winter theme card, or both. I loosely used the sketch over at Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I'm also linking up over at Just us Girls where the theme is Winter and Frosted Designs where the theme is "White as a snowflake".
I created the snowflake ornament by die cutting all the snowflakes using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Snowflakes die. I heat embossed each snowflake using a clear, glittery embossing powder. I assembled the snowflake flower using glue dots, and added a pearl to the centre.
