winter wonderland 2sketches4you and daring card makers

This for Lauras sketch at the 2sketches 4you site and also this week on daring card makers there's a fabulous tutorial all about embossing so i was inspired to get out my cuttlebug !! I used my speaking of winter cart for the snowflake which i cut 3 times and glued together to make it like chipboard, i used Tim holtz inks and stickles to decorate the snowflake !! I also embossed the snowflake with the swiss dots folder and used the snowflake folder for the corner piece. wording is a rub on ! metal snowflake brads finish it off !! Thanks for looking and don't forget to check out both these fabulous sites !

Hi Michelle, I'm please that you felt the need to get your Cuttlebug out.
I love your card, especially the added extra of the embossing on the snowflake as well as the card.
