Belli Challenge #134

Hi ya'll!

I'm SO super excited!  I get to share my first project as a Belli Girl with you today! 

This weeks challenge is: Snowflakes.  I have to admit, I was a bit burned out on all of the Christmas stuff, but I went "shopping" in my stash, and came across my Tim Holtz snowflake die and the creative mojo started flowing.  Here is what I came up with.

I LOVE this card!  I distressed the main panel with Barn Door and Fired Brick distress ink, then I stamped the flourish with water, and the script in brown ink.  I embossed my sentiment in white, so that it would "pop" against the red and it looks pretty darn good.  I added my snowflake border, some lace, twine and a bow with a pearl, and was finished.  Everything except for the stamps I used are hoarded supplies.  The lace, twine and die have been in my possession for over a year.  Now I can add this to my stash of Christmas cards for this year, and feel great about using up some of my stuff.  Yay!  I've also combined the folloiwng challenges in my card.
