Winter Thank You

  Happy Friday!  We're back into the swing of things at the Fab Friday challenge.  Mindy has a fun and versatile sketch for us this week.  Head over to the Fab Friday challenge to see the other design team inspiration and play along.  Remember you have 2 weeks so that's plenty of time to enter a card or 2!

  So what are you going to make with this sketch??

  Here's what I did….

  After every Christmas I need a giant stack of thank you cards for family, friends and co-workers so I was going for a winter themed thank you with this one.  I used Shimmery White card stock for the base and snowflake layer.  I embossed with the Northern Flurry embossing folder after stamping the snowflakes in Wisteria Wonder and Elegant Eggplant.

  The sentiment from Sweet Essentials was heat embossed in white on Elegant Eggplant card stock.  Don't forget to use your Embossing Buddy (yes this was my second attempt!).  I added some bling with rhinestones and a Silver Glimmer paper snowflake popped on a tiny piece of dimensional.

  I wish the photo showed the shimmer more but there is something funky going on with my camera…see the little bit of blur up at the top?  There is something stuck inside the lens of the camera and I can't get it out.  I think it's messing with the crispness of the macro setting.  My husband had to take the camera apart before for the same problem.  Does anyone out there know anything about this?  I'd appreciate any insight you might have!

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
