Inspirational #111 - One Last Snowfall

Spring is definitely going on in southern Arizona but Red Rubber Inspirationals is having a challenge called One Last Snowfall.  I love snow (but not the blowing variety) and wanted to take part in this challenge.  I used a stamp set called Ornamental Snowflakes by RRD.  This card will be used as a Christmas card later.

I used 3 different blue inks by Memento to stamp the flakes.

I added a beautiful sequin I won from a friend with A|Muse Studios and added a pearl gem over it for that touch of bling.

And I used an old Fiskars corner punch (that I've had for about 15+ years) but I see that it didn't punch cleanly on this particular corner. In fact only 1 corner punched cleanly.  Hmmm.... time to get out some foil and clean this ancient punch.  Anyway, head over to Red Rubber Inspirationals and check out the fun inspiration cards.

That is a beautiful card. I have quiet a few snowflake stamps, so I may have to try this. I also like the corner punches and your color choice.
Good Job, Sistah'!

The idea of making a wreath from he snowflakes is inspired. The colors are pretty too.
