Merry Monday #132, Snowflakes, Neutral colors and Dry Embossing

Happy Tuesday evening fellow bloggers!  If you're thinking "But it's only Tuesday," think of it this way:  We're one day closer to the coming weekend than we were yesterday, lol!  I know, on with it already...
So, I'm here to share with you the card I made for this week's Merry Monday theme:
 
And here's my card:
 
 
Here's the lowdown:  Used Darice Snowflake Trim embossing folder which was also inked with Colorbox Frost White ink in the folder, and then painstakingly (but lovingly) added Star Dust Stickles to each snowflake.  Used one of my favorite wood stamps from Studio G for the sentiment, embossed in Snow detail embossing powder.  Used Snowflake One set from Spellbinders for my snowflake piece, which is cut from champagne shimmer paper and edged with Antique Linen.  Also popped up each layer on foam tape for dimension.  In retrospect, I may also add a pearl to the center of the snowflake.
 
Challenges this will go into:
 
Merry Monday #132:  Snowflakes, dry embossing and neutral colors
Completely Christmas#35:  Anything goes w/a twist, add a sentiment
 
As always, thanks for stopping by...take care and give your loved ones a hug!
