Winter Wishes - Winter

Hello there!  This is my second post for today so if you're looking for my Newton's Nook Designs post, please view the post below this.  
It's time for a new Where Creativity Meets C9 Challenge!  This month's challenge is all about Winter, so think frosty days with snow and icicles or in crafty terms, glitter, silver, white, blues or cozy colors.  I hope you'll pull out your Concord & 9th supplies and join us for this month's challenge.
 For my card, I used the Concord & 9th stamp sets, Flourish for the stamped leaves, stems and berries for my background and I used Sophisticated Script Uppercase and Sophisticated Script Lowercase to stamp my Winter Wishes sentiment.  I started out with an enchanted evening card base, then stamped a panel of white cardstock using spring rain & brocade blue inks and the large leaf/stem stamp from the Flourish set.  Then I went back in with enchanted evening ink to stamp some detail into the leaves.  Next I stamped my sentiment onto a die cut oval using enchanted evening ink.  A tip I can pass along when lining up these beautiful script letters is to stamp the center letters first and work your way out.  For instance, I stamped the "n" and "s" in each word and then stamped the reminder of my letters.  I also stamped off using spring rain ink onto my oval sentiment piece, then adhered it to my card with foam tape.  To a bit of sparkle, I added some silver sequins throughout my background.
Thank you for your visit!

Your 'Frosty' card is not only lovely, but an ingenious showcase of combining various stamps sets! I think I have all of these (a bit obsessed with C9!), so I'll be adding this gem to my 'case' list!

Gorgeous! I had been thinking of doing something similar, as Flourish is one of the two Concord & 9th stamps that I own...

Gorgeous card! I love the colors. I wasn't a big fan of the Flourish stamp set until now, I think I will reconsider. Great job.
