Magic Snowflake....

Only sort of.... It's not really magic, but it is cool. I love emboss resist, and it looks amazing on this card. The snowflake is done in white embossing powder and then sponged over with Night of Navy. I added a pearl to the middle for that little bit more, and it really makes the center pop. I love how much contrast there is on this card, I had originally done it in Marina Mist, but it looks a million times better in Night of Navy.

Stamps: Four The Holidays, Serene Snowflakes
Inks: Versa Mark, Night of Navy
Papers: Whisper White, Night of Navy
Misc: White Embossing Powder, Sponge Daubers, Silver Elastic Cord (retired), Pearls, Dimensionals

I had another long day today, but sadly I don't think it's over just yet. I realized I still have a ton of Christmas Cards to make, and I need to do them asap if I want to get them out before we leave. Days like today I am beyond grateful for wonderful caring nurses. My grams has been pretty out of it all day and her nurses are amazing! They have gone above and beyond what their actual duties are and I am sooo grateful for them.
