CAS Snowflake

I combined 2 challenges to make this card today. I used the CASology Cue Card#10 with the word "sky" to inspire my card. I also used the CAS-ual Friday's CFC69 challenge to "emboss - wet or dry." The snowflake from CTMH was stamped with Versamark, then embossed with clear detail. I sponged Danube Blue, Summer Sky, and Lulu Lavender inks by Memento to add color. The sentiment was masked from a HM image by Stampendous in Danube blue, and I added lavender and silver gems & beads, along with a silver snowflake brad for the finishing touches. The die cut is by SB.



Thanks for stopping by today - I wish you a wonderful Wednesday!
