It's that time again - time for another challenge at 
Christmas Card Challenges and this time we have a photo
to inspire you. 

My first thought was of the movie Frozen - I don't have little girls -
mine were 19 and 15 when the movie came out - but they made me 
watch it anyway.
 I didn't want to do a card with Elsa on it so I went with snowflakes as 
the focus and kept singing 'Let it Go' the whole time I was making it.

First I stamped the snowflakes with versamark ink onto watercolor paper
and then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. Next
I used some different shades of blues from Tim Holtz distress inks to 
create the snowy sky scene.  After it dried I covered the whole piece 
with versamark and sprinkled some dazzling diamonds over top.
Watching that stuff heat set is so cool - it's so sparkly - love it!
I wish it showed better in the photo for you.

I decided to continue with the embossing theme and
embossed the sentiment in white onto black card stock. 

Now it's your turn.
How does the photo inspire you?
