Snowflake Card

I saw some really neat snowflake cards on Wizard's Hangout, here. I thought they were very striking. I don't own the same sets as the ones Vicky uses however. So after much trial and error (and borrowing the Merry & Bright set from my friend, Becky (thanks!), here is what I came up with.
I liked the Gypsy and Whisper color combination. And I really like the linear look of the single snowflake stamp sold in the Autumn/Winter 2013 CTMH catalog(it's an M stamp). I had a hard time finding a small snowflake that looked right. I made this several days ago and didn't note the set I got that stamp from. Shoot. You'd think I'd remember, but I own a lot of snowflake sets. LOL The sentiment is from Merry and Bright. I added the gems from my stash.  A lot of cardstock ended up in the wastebasket, but I'm glad I persevered.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

This is gorgeous Jeanne. I love the purple and grey together.

Here's hoping the broncos can redeem themselves tomorrow.

Pretty card, Jeanne! I know what you mean about having a lot of one type of stamp - I finally had to cut myself off from new flowers. It's only "sorta" working. LOL.

I love the colors you used and your card is beautiful! Thanks for the idea! Hugs!
