Snowflakes Thank You Note Card - Stamper's Ten Challenge Card

This month Joanne gave us enough supplies to make two Stamper's Ten challenge cards.  We were given CS in Real Red, Old Olive, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Very Vanilla and Whisper White, a piece of Olive patterned paper, some white and red ribbon, the stamped snowflake thank you tag plus 3 gold brads.  This is the first card I made using some of the supplies, an after Christmas thank you note, made using Nestie Label Eight dies.

I stamped the snowflakes on the Choc Chip layer in Choc Chip ink and stamped them in Real Red on the Celery layer.  I wrapped a strip of Real Red ribbon around the celery layer and added white ribbon and a rhinestone brad to the tag.  The tag is fixed to the card with the brad plus a glue dot to keep it in place.

This card has a surprise!  The Choc Chip round tab with a punched snowflake is there because this is a brad rotation card, one of the designs featured in the UStamp Cards with Cool Moves event.  The celery panel swings up and reveals the 'You raise kindness to an art' sentiment.
