Silver Glimmer Snowflake Card

It's been a crazy couple of days and I'm super happy it's Friday! I have the day off today, so I spent some time this morning playing in my craft room. It took me a little while to decide what I wanted to make. I started by searching current challenges and I finally came up with an idea. I made this Silver Glimmer Snowflake Card using the colours from the Just Add Ink challenge. The challenge colours are Silver, Bermuda Bay and Black. A Christmas challenge at Paperminutes prompted the snowflake idea. The final result is a non-traditional coloured Christmas card.

My Silver Glimmer Snowflake Card is entered into the following challenges:
The Northern Flurry embossing folder by Stampin' Up! and last years retired Snowflake Die made this card a snap to put together. I really hope we have some snow this year! A white Christmas would be nice. I'll just sit here and think of snow while it's 94 degrees outside, just a little wishful thinking. Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
