Snowflakes Are Falling...

I made this card following a post on Cricut Message Boards.  A great group of Ladies over there!!!!
When I started this I thought doesn't look to tricky, well that was before my mind started working!

Size: 5x7
(I need to work a little larger not good at small pieces yet)

I used lots of pop dots for dimension on this!!  Stickled and put pearls on the little snowflakes that I layered about 5 times.  

Ribbon is from my huge stash I have!!!

I used Wild Card for the Argyle layered over DCWV paper I had from last year cut at 5x7.

The snow flakes are from the Winter Woodland cart cut at 1 1/2 about 5 times.

Used George Basic Shapes to cut the Diamonds and ran thru my cuddlebug with swiss dot folder inked with white, powdery blue and silver ink. ( I had to use ds to get diamonds the right size)

Did use a silver gel pen to define the diamonds also.

I really enjoyed this card and am a little proud because I learned so many new things while making it.  

* A special thank you to Custom Crops for posting how to make words in the shape of a circle.  I was able to make my own little circle sentiment using their instructions.  

Let me know what you think!! Leave a comment!!
