Silver's and Blues make a pretty card

My sketch for this weeks Challenge was suppose to be followed exactly as sketched, and using the Love Doily, however, my idea changed as our first entrant this week had made my card as I had envisioned it.  LOL!

So, I'm back to square one, I still want to stick with the rectangle shape, and cut my card base so that it measures 3 1/2" by 8".  The base is cut from White Daisy CS.  Next I took the large snowflake from the Stamp set Snowflakes(D1480) and stamped it with Versamark Ink and heat embossed it with Silver Embossing powder.  Next using a mixture of different snowflakes I stamped around the embossed snowflakes in Crystal Blue Ink and Twilight Ink, both were stamped in first and second generation.

To finish the card off, I added a strip of Silver Shimmer Trim, and the Sentiment comes from Yuletide Greetings (D1553), which is stamped in Twilight Ink.

This size card is perfect for a cash card.....and who doesn't like receiving cash at Christmas!!!

Please remember to go check out the design team's creations now over on the Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge.
