... on my card for The Daily Dare challenge - The12 Days of Christmas; Day 11 of which is being sponsored by my favourite stamping company - Waltzingmouse Stamps. The challenge card has to be uploaded to the Splitcoaststampers Gallery with the reference "DD12DAYS11". The challenge is to use snowflakes - well I'd sort of moved onto more spring-like stamps, but who can resist snowflakes? Not me!!
I stamped a mixutre of snowflakes - from Stampin' Up! and Waltzingmouse - using Versamark. Then I added some pastel perfect pearls - soft pink, blue, violet and green. I burnished this into the snowflakes and was really pleased with the subtle shimmer on the card. I added a topper which had been embossed using my Cuttlebug - The Winter House - I added some glitter for a snow effect, and cut out the centre of the design with my Spellbingder petit scalloped circle. Finally, I added a greeting - let it snow!! Actually it seems totally appropriate as the cold weather is coming back and we have snow forecast. I think this is the first of my 2011 Christmas collection!!! Gosh, I'm ahead of myself :)
