OCC Challenge - Snowflakes

Hello & thanks for stopping by! Can you believe it's only 6 day's until Christmas?!?! My children are reminding us every few hours!! My sample today is for this weeks challenge over at Our Creative Corner. This week our December host, Jenny Gropp, has created a snowflake challenge. Snowflake stamps, paper or embellishments - anything with snowflakes. We warmly invite you to play along, feel free to use your favorite stamps and supplies.

For my sample, I cased a card I found in Bloggerland by Natasha Zandbergen - Inking Out of the Box. Natasha has some beautiful cards and projects, be sure to stop by for some fun holiday inspiration - please tell her that Jennifer sent you!! :)

For my sample, I used a NEW set by SU called Serene Snowflakes. Since I LOVE snowflakes, I had to have this set!! As you can see by Natasha's design, I changed it just a bit. I used kraft, chocolate chip and white cardstock. The snowflakes background was stamped using close to cocoa and chocolate chip ink. Some of the snowflakes were double stamped to give it a softer glow. Once of all of the pieces were added together I added my tag sentiment and a large snowflake. I then added glue and some fun clear chunky glitter by Martha Stewart.

Thanks so much for stopping by, please don't forget to visit the OCC, the Design Team have put together some wonderful samples to help inspire you for the holidays! Have a wonderful weekend! Hugs & Smiles...
