Snowflake Card - 52 {C}CT May Pick A Previous Challenge

As there is a 5th Saturday in May we have a Pick a Previous challenge for you this week at 52 {C}CT and we want you to Pick a Previous sketch.  We have a sketch archive HERE, so take a look, choose any sketch and then get creating.  You can substitute shapes, rotate/flip the sketch and make a square or rectangular card - as long as the basic layout comes through to us, it's all good!  Please remember to tell us which sketch you selected.

 

I chose sketch #17 from May 2013. 
 
After selecting the patterned paper I made an A6 size Coastal Cabana card base and I layered the paper onto a Midnight Muse mat.  I added a strip of Coastal Cabana CS, die cut the white and Midnight Muse label shapes and added the Midnight Muse ribbon.  I stamped and die cut the snowflake, added a Midnight Muse snowflake shape behind the stamped one as a shadow and popped it up.  I added Circle Dazzlers embellishments and placed a rhinestone in the centre of the snowflake to complete the card front. I went back and forth a few times about adding a sentiment - in the end I decided not to.


Here's the inside and the envelope.  I think these colours are wonderful together and I love the luxurious foil finish on the paper!


So now it's over to you to get making, link up your festive creation here at 52 {C}CT - and have fun!
