Ornament and Snowflakes

Dear Ones~

What glorious sunny day it is. A welcome site after the 3" of snow we woke up to last weekend. Wish it would stay this way.

I am entering today's offering in the Mod Squad Challenge Blog. This challenge requires that you make a winter card using at least one die. The blog is being hosted this week by two of my favorite people, Donna Phelan and Joyce Erb. Both these ladies are over-the-top talented. Click on their names to visit their blog.

Here's my card:
I used several dies on this card. The blue ornament was done with Brushos on watercolor paper. After I painted the paper I added some gold splatters and die cut a circle that perfectly matched the ornament die. LOVE that die, I won it some time ago, and can't remember when or where. ~scratches head~  For the panel I embossed some white card with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dot folder, cut an oval out of the middle, and then attached that beautiful, delicate oval snowflake die cut on top. That panel was attached with foam tape so the ornament is seen through the oval.

Here are the Ingredients:
GKD White Card Stock
Strathmore Watercolor Paper
Cuttlebug Swiss Dot Embossing Folder
Poppy Stamps Winter Frame Die
Marianne Designs Christmas Bauble Die
Impression Obsession Snowflake Die
Greeting is a Stamp from my Stash
GKD Gold Embossing Powder
Stash Ribbon

So that's it for me. Thanks for stopping by, I adore your comments. Hope you are enjoying the beautiful fall color. And if you live down under, hope you are enjoying your spring!!! XOXO
