Freshly Made Sketches #200 celebration

Always late to the party, but I have arrived. Freshly Made Sketches is celebrating their 200th sketch. Congratulations! And there are sponsors! And prizes! Here is my contribution:

 And the inside:

The top panel was die cut and popped up with thin foam squares. Then I die cut and layered the snowflakes from shimmery white card stock and vellum. The sentiment was first inked with Versa Mark, then red ink, so I could heat emboss it with clear embossing powder. Some rhinestones finished it off.

There's (barely) some time left to enter your project. Why not play along? Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous layered snowflakes, too. Love that you added in some vellum, and the gems are the perfect finishing touch!
