Thanks Snow Much - FTTC#94

It's time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC94)! This week Cindy Haffner is hosting and she is challenging us to a sketch she has designed. As far as sketches go, there is not much of an explanation necessary. You can turn it and modify the shapes to fit your size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck! We cannot wait to see what you create with it!

Isn't that a fabulous sketch! I have a feeling I'll be using this one again! As you can see, I flipped the base for my card today, but I kept all the elements intact.

I'm using a Flourishes set from the last release: Warm Winter Wishes, stamped on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. Patterned paper is from a Martha Stewart mat stack I just picked up--love these colors together! For the sentiment, I first stamped a snowflake image with Soft Sky in, then over-stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and added some tiny red rhinestones. Edges of all elements were sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. 

Now, be sure to go see what my team mates did with this challenge!
Thanks for stopping by!
