Blue and White with Texture

Merry Monday, everyone! It's always merry when I can make a card on my day off! This week's challenge at Merry Monday is a color combo - use blue and white with some texture - courtesy of Lesley. Right away I went to the embossing folder stash, planning to ink the white embossed paper with blue ink. As usual, the ink went on more than the embossed portion so I continued adding with a lighter blue and then edged the paper with a darker blue. I stamped and white embossed my sentiment directly on the card base, then stamped a tone-on-tone blue snowflake background. I popped the embossed snowflake onto the card with foam and added some crystal domes. Done!

Here's my card:

What a gorgeous, crisp creation! Love the fact that you put that big ol' snowflake in the foreground, but then stamped the little ones in the background. Amazing design idea! Thank you for the sweet compliment on my card! I'm happy to report I'm your newest follower.
