52 CCT / FMS

Thought I would get one more post in today.  The theme challenge for October at
52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown is to "bling it up!" I do love to use bling!  So I thought
I would use the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for my bling creation.

Here's what I ended up with.

I wanted to use white and silver.  So I started with a DCWV silver shimmer  card stock and 
some plain white card stock, which I wanted to emboss with a new embossing folder I
 bought yesterday.  After playing around with just those solid pieces for a while I decided I
needed a print.  But I didn't have any silver and white printed paper so I used a dot
background stamp and created my own.  I die cut the snowflake with the Spellbinders
Create -A- Flake Four and the banners with the Sizzix Banners 2 set.  I added a
makingmemories deco metal sticker to the center of the snowflake and finished with some
 clear crystals.  I think it turned out rather well.  Thanks for taking a look!
