Snowflake Challenge - My First!

Today I found a card challenge on Simon Says Stamps and decided to enter my very FIRST one! 

 For those of you interested the link is:  

The creation had to be anything at all with snowflakes - and since I'm busy trying to make and perfect my Christmas cards, I thought, "why not".

Here is the process as I pulled the papers, ribbons, scraps and ideas together.

I really wanted to try some colors that weren't so "traditional".

 I brushed on tacky glue with a small paintbrush (oh how I wish Santa would bring me a Xyron). 

The process of cutting these snowflakes on my Cricut was a bit of a chore (there are MANY) 
pieces to remove both from the image AND the cutting mat.

 I used the Best Images From 2007 cartridge for the die cut.

I found this scrap of old Christmas ribbon in a box - perfect!

 Close up showing the dry embossing with a Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls folder and the shimmer on the blue cardstock. 

I was in such a hurry to post this today that I didn't even wait for the glue to dry on the rhinestones -
 silly me.

Have a wonderful Wednesday 
 remember to be kind to everyone you encounter today!
