Snowflakes Winter's Butterfly Card - 52 {C}CT March Pick A Previous Challenge

At 52 {C}CT we're asking you to Pick a Previous Colour Combo for this week's challenge.  We have a Colour Combos Archive that you can select from. I took a break early on in the year and missed out on a couple of colour combo challenges so I chose a combo I hadn't worked with before - this one from January 2014.

Pale blue, light purple and teal were the 3 colours I opted to use for my card, working with SU! Soft Sky, Wisteria Wonder and Bermuda Bay.  I stamped the sentiment and 3 snowflakes onto the white panel.  I inked up the Weathered background stamp with Bermuda Bay, stamped off twice and then stamped onto the panel.  I inked the edges with a sponge dauber and then decided to add some sparkle.  I squished some Dazzling Details glitter glue onto my craft mat, rolled my brayer over it a few times and then lightly brayered the glitter glue over the panel.  I layered onto Soft Sky and Wisteria Wonder mats and applied the panel to a 5 1/4" square white card base.  I then added some punched Soft Sky snowflakes and sprinkled on some rhinestones.

Here's a closer look at the sparkle.

Here's the inside of the card and the envelope flap with just some simple stamping.

I hope you'll have fun selecting a colour combo and making a card to add to your Christmas card stash!  Link up your creations at 52 {C}CT, I'm looking forward to seeing what you make!

Fantastic! I adore snowflakes (not the real ones mind) on Christmas cards. I love the sparkle and bling and the sentiment is perfect. Love the inside and envelope too!

oh Wow Ruth! This is so gorgeous. What a wonderful frosty Christmas card you've created. I think sometimes you and I must be related as we pick similar schemes and ideas for our cards (I used the same color combo this week) - great minds :o) Hope all is well. Hugs D
