WSC62 - Pink Snowflake

I'm back and feeling much better, thanks for the well wishes that some of you left, luckily I was not feeling well for only a few days. This card is for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #62, my card measures 4"x 8" (this fits inside a standard business envelope) and I used the stamp set Best Wishes & More along with Elegant Cheer for the saying. The large pink snowflake is a die which was cut out using my Big Shot with the center snowflake stamped in Pretty in Pink and glittered with dazzling diamonds and a rhinestone brad added, then the whole piece was pop dotted. The top portion was embossed with the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug folder and the bottom of the card was stamped with the Polka Dot back ground stamp. I have a hard time working with pastel colors because I usually work with earth tone or bright colors, so this was a change for me.

Have a great weekend!

This is soooo beautiful, love the colors and great job with the sketch. I love these huge snowflakes and just bought one. I hope it works in my Big Kick because no matter how bad I want one, I can't have a Big Shot right now! Glad you're feeling better!!
