Happy Holidays - Snowflakes


Gosh it feels like it's been forever that I stamped!
The first part of the week I was down and out each night with this cold and the later part of the week I was busy with work.
Luckily, I'm on a three day weekend!
Today I will stamp. Yes.I.Will.

Today the Paper Players have a fun Snowflake Challenge!
For my card I went a little more masculine in the colours and design.
I embossed a black piece of cardstock with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. 
My snowflake was created with a MFT die and then embossed with SU! detailed gold embossing powder. Love that stuff but don't use it nearly enough! The sentiment was embossed in gold and is from Verve.
This card uses the Freshly Made Sketch from this week and also the Dynamic Duos Challenge colours of gold and black.
I do hope you'll play along with us this week and upload your snowflake card to the Paper Players Blog!
Thanks for stopping by!
