Great Mail Day and Challenge Card

What a GREAT day to get mail!!! No bills either! YAH!
Today I received this card and spool of Tangerine Grosgrain Ribbon from Beate. A few weeks ago I won one of her sketch challenges and this is what she sent me!! I've been using a TON of this ribbon lately too...so it's perfect! Thanks Beate!
On SCS today it's Try a New Technique day....
Well I've never done either one of the Resist Techniques and I don't know why....haha
It was a pretty simple technique. I thought it was one that would take too long so I never attempted it.
I'd gotten this Autumn Leaves Winter Wonderland set sometime in June maybe and I've been wanting to use it.
On the glossy cardstock I stamped the snowflake in VersaMark and then poured Clear Embossing Powder on it....heat it up and then stamped the other snowflake in VersaMark and then brayered Bashful Blue over the whole thing. Then I wiped it with a papertowel. Such a fast and easy technique, I'll will definitely do it again!
Supplies Used:
Stamp Set: Autumn Leaves Winter Wonderland
Cardstock: Bashful Blue, MellowMoss, WW and Glossy
Inks: Bashful Blue, Black Stazon, MellowMoss, Pumpkin, Pretty in Pink and VersaMark
Accessories: Clear Embossing Powder, White Embossing Powder(for the sentiment), Bluebird Grosgrain, 2 Way Glue Pen and Iridescent Ice Powder, Corner Rounder Punch and Slot Punch, Dimensionals

Beate made a good choice - your very creative - I love the snowman card. I saw that technique the other day and thought maybe I could do not - thanks for the inspiration.
