Winter's Wonder

Beate's inspiration challenge this week was exactly that for me... very challenging! In addition to using her photo as my inspiration, I also wanted to add a card to my Christmas stash. Without a doubt, the first thing that caught my eye was the orange armoire, but what I really loved most was the color of the floor. The very cool blue actually made me think of snowflakes. It's actually really interesting to see all the different takes from this photo!

My card is very simple with the only stamping being the sentiment. The snowflake pp is so pretty in real life. It's flocked and the texture is very soft!

Cardstock: PTI; Patterned paper: MAMBI (snowflake), Making Memories Noteworthy (orange); Stamps: Verve; Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black; Nestabilities labels 2; Snowflower: Imaginesce; Other: paper piercer, ribbon, candy dot (Pebbles), foam tape.
