Snow Flakes....

Hello and happy Friday to you all! The rain has gone away, it's a pretty day out (but for the waterlogged ground) and I decided to make a Christmas card! This is inspired by Sweet Sunday Sketch #217 and by Jingle Bells - All Bundled Up (use layers):

and the inside of my card:

Based on this sketch:

Yep, I did another chalkboard type card. I can't get enough of this look! All edges were inked with walnut stain before being adhered. The stamp set I've had for a few years, but this was the first time inking up this particular stamp. I also shopped my stash for those snowflakes. The blue ones are foam, and the appliques are actually iron ons that I just popped on with foam squares.

Well, that's all I've got. I hope you have a great evening and weekend! Thanks for stopping by!
