Sparkly Snowflakes

A quick edit--Hazel from Crafty Hazelnuts Christmas Challenge came over and invited me to join in her challenge since it was embossing also. So I've added her to my side bar. She has a new challenge every Saturday. If you're a challenge junkie like me you'll want to join in the fun over at her place also. You can click on the link below to get started, there is still time for this week.
Bah! Humbug! is challenging us to create cards or projects with embossing this week.
I decided to emboss this Candy Cane Christmas paper with the Textured Impressions Northern Flurry embossing folder and hit it with Whisper White ink. After I stamped the sentiment in red and added the red crystals I was going to put a sheer white bow, but the longer I looked at this the more I said, "Naw, go for simplicity." So here you have it. I could actually send this in to the Take Ten magazine because I don't think it even took me ten minutes to create. Pretty much a first for me.
1 Challenge: 
    Supplies: White Card Blank 5" X 6 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: Stampin Up-Specialty Designer Series Paper Candy Cane Christmas, Always Artichoke, Stamp: Stampin Up-Seasonal Sentiments, Ink: Stampin Up-Whisper White Craft Ink, Riding Hood Red, Sharpie Poster Paint Pen-White, Stampin Up-Textured Impressions Northern Flurry embossing folder, Michael Richard's crystal stickers-red.

    Thanks for viewing,
    Beverly G ♥
