Metallic Christmas


Don't get much crafting done with PC being on the blink so I am still using my laptop.  Its time for 'Less is More' Challenge again and I like the idea of the 'Metallic' theme.  I have used a white base card and I have rubbed my silver ink pad all over the edges.  I have added a white layer embossed with a Snowflakes Embossing Folder and a Merry Christmas Embossing Folder. The ribbon is from Dovecraft Range.  I have used a silver foil  baking tray for the Snowflakes and they are cut with a Marianne Creatible Die.

Lovely and Christmassy Maureen, don;t think it will be that long before we have snow again!
Personally Id have positioned the snowflakes in a straight line just about then sentiment, but, just my opinion

Thank you
