Blesssings of the Season

Blessings-of-the-Season-BB1

Hello blogging friends!  Things are still hectic here so I'm sharing another card I had in the works. 

I made this with Our Daily Bread designs Nov. release, Warm Wishes, and also Peace and Joy.  The design paper is BoBunny's newest release, Snowfall.  I stamped the sentiment from Warm Wishes onto one of the elements in the BoBunny 12 x 12 pack, and then stamped the small snowflake from Peace & Joy with VersaColor, and cut with the custom die cut.  I covered the entire snowflake with crystal glitter, then sponged the edges.  I did some piercing around the edges but really wanted to let the paper and stamp steal this show, so I kept it simple.  This is nice and flat and mailable... and super quick to make!

I am entering this in the following challenges:
Hooked on Crafts -  Punches and /or Diecuts, Make it Monday - always Anything Goes, Make My Monday - Christmas WITH Flowers, Foliage or Snowflakes, Paper Creations Ink -  Christmas, One Stitch At A Time -  Anything Goes Crafty Emma -  #62 Snowflakes
